Sean Peter Hessey (born 19 September 1978 in Whiston, Merseyside) is an English professional footballer who plays as a defender for Accrington Stanley.

Hessey previously played for Liverpool F.C Leeds United, Wigan Athletic, Huddersfield Town, Kilmarnock, Blackpool, Chester City and Macclesfield Town.

His time at Kilmarnock was marred by accusations of stealing creme eggs and various other sweets from a Petrol Station shop in Dreghorn, Ayrshire.

Hessey joined Chester after the club were promoted back to the Football League in 2004 and was a first-choice player for much of his first three years at the club, although he quite often missed games because of injury and suspension problems. The most notable was a five-match ban at the start of the 2006-07 season after an incident in the home game against Stockport County the previous season. Hessey has proved to be a versatile player, operating in both central defensive and full back roles and also in a holding midfield spot.

Chester manager Bobby Williamson, who managed Hessey at Kilmarnock, placed him on the transfer window in the summer of 2007. He did not figure in the Chester 16-man matchday squad in any game for the 2007 08 season and was allowed to join League Two rivals Macclesfield Town on 10 November 2007 in a two-month loan. In January 2008, this was extended until the end of the season. and at the end of the season he was released by Chester.

Hessey followed up his successful loan period by signing a two year contract with Macclesfield. He was released by the club, along with 10 other players at the end of the 2009/10 season.

He joined Accrington Stanley in August 2010 on a twelve month contract after having being on trial at the club.
