Jason Thomson (born 26 July 1987 in Edinburgh) is a Scottish professional footballer currently playing for Scottish Premier League club Dunfermline Athletic, on loan from Heart of Midlothian.

Thomson joined boyhood favourites Hearts from their youth ranks in 2003. He earned an unexpectedly early debut in March 2005, when a flu epidemic at Tynecastle forced Hearts' head coach John Robertson into naming a plethora of youngsters in his first team squad against Inverness Caledonian Thistle. Thomson started and impressed against the Highland side, and was rewarded with two further first team appearances that season.

It was a different story in 2005 06 however, as a wave of new signings and Hearts' impressive form ensured Thomson spent the entire season playing reserve and under-19 football. In search of further playing time, Thomson was reunited with John Robertson, by then Livingston manager, for the 2006 07 season.

Under Stephen Frail towards the end of the 07/08 season Jason played the final 5 games of the season. This meant upon Csaba Laszlo's arrival Jason was a part of the first team squad. He went on to start the season at Right back in Robbie Neilson's absence and played a squad part for much of the season covering when either Neilson or Lee Wallace were out. He signed a new 3 year deal in April 2009. Jason returned to the first team with a start against local rivals Hibs on November 7, 2009 replacing Craig Thomson (no relation) in the starting line up and was voted the match sponsors man of the match in a very impressive display.
