Jesse Loy Powell (April 14, 1947 – June 14, 2012) was a professional American football linebacker in the National Football League. He attended West Texas A&M. He played linebacker and special teams with the Miami Dolphins from 1969 to 1973.

Powell was a member of the Dolphins during their perfect season of 1972 when the team had a 17-0 combined record in the regular season and playoffs and won Super Bowl VII. Overall, Powell appeared in three Super Bowls.[1]

Following retirement from the NFL, Powell briefly worked in the food industry before working with State Farm Insurance for 35 years. He retired from that company on March 31, 2012.[1]

Powell died in a Texas hospital on June 14, 2012. His brother told a local news agency that the mechanism of death was cardiac arrest, but a formal cause of death had not been established.[1]
