Jayson Truitt Edward Nix(born August 26, 1982 in Dallas, Texas) is an American professional baseball utility player for the Toronto Blue Jays of Major League Baseball. The Colorado Rockies selected Nix as a sandwich pick (44th overall) between the first and second rounds of the 2001 Major League Baseball Draft as compensation for not signing their first round pick in the 2000 Major League Baseball Draft (Matt Harrington). He is the younger brother of Laynce Nix, who plays for the Washington Nationals.

Nix was born in Dallas, Texas, and still makes his offseason home there. He attended Midland High School in Midland, Texas, the hometown of First Lady Laura Bush, a point that President George W. Bush made to his wife while meeting with the Olympic team on August 11, 2008, in Beijing.
