Jack Pitt (20 May 1920 17 August 2004), also known as Jackie Pitt, is a former professional footballer who spent the majority of his career at Bristol Rovers.

His testimonial match was at Bath on August 13, 1988 against Wimbledon.

Pitt spent more than 50 years at Bristol Rovers as a player, coach and groundsman. He was part of the half back line "Pitt, Warren and Sampson" that guided the Rovers to promotion to Division Two in 1953 and sustained them in their early years there. A hard tackling half-back, Jackie was known for his rivalry with Bristol City's equally tough defender, Ernie Peacock.

Jack Pitt gave his life to his beloved club Bristol Rovers.
