Jesper Bech (born May 25, 1982) is a Danish professional football (soccer) player, who currently plays for FC Roskilde in the Danish 1st Division. He is 1.78 m tall and plays in the striker position. He has played two matches for the Danish national team.


Bech played his youth years for Ålholm IF, Skjold Birkerød, B 1903, Lyngby BK and KB. He got his national breakthrough with F.C. Copenhagen in the Danish Superliga championship, where he debuted in April 2004. He scored seven goals in nine games during his first season, and helped the club win the 2003–04 Danish Superliga title as well as the 2004 Danish Cup trophy. In the following season, sharp competition from strikers Alvaro Santos and Sibusiso Zuma kept Bech out of his preferred striker role. He was either used as a substitute, or in the role of winger. Bech transferred to Swedish club Malmö FF in the summer 2005.

At Malmö, he looked to replace Swedish international striker Markus Rosenberg before the UEFA Champions League qualification, but Bech never got a breakthrough at the club. Following one year at Malmö, he moved back to Denmark to play for Esbjerg fB in the summer 2006. In the first half of the 2006–07 Superliga season, Bech rediscovered his goal scoring form, and was at a time the joint top goalscorer of the league. On November 15, 2006 he got his Danish national team debut in a friendly match against the Czech Republic, when he came on the pitch in the second half, as a substitute for Peter Løvenkrands.
