Jesse James Dupree born January 1, 1970 is an American rock guitarist and lead singer in the band Jackyl. His most famous routine involves playing a chainsaw during the song "The Lumberjack".

He also started a solo project with guitarist John Hayes and bassist Roman Glick (formerly of Brother Cane).[1] His 2000 solo release Foot Fetish, issued on V2 Records, featured the single "Mainline", which hit #34 on the U.S. Billboard Mainstream Rock Tracks chart.[2] Dupree also has a customized electric guitar with a chainsaw attached. He endorses an extremely large customized chainsaw powered by a Dodge Hemi, used for festivals. In September 2001 Dupree performed a cover of AC/DC's "Highway To Hell" for the ECW Music CD Anarchy Rocks.
