David Edward Jackson (1788–1837) was an American pioneer, explorer, trader, and fur trapper.

He spent his early life west of the Shenandoah Mountains, in what was then part of Virginia and is now in West Virginia: he was born in Randolph County, and his parents, Edward and Elizabeth Jackson, soon moved the family west to Lewis County, on the Cumberland Plateau.

He was one of those who opened the Oregon Trail having explored many connecting valleys in his life as a trapper. By 1826 Jackson bought a majority position in the three year old Rocky Mountain Fur Company, and along with several partners, prospered while the fur bearing beavers remained plentiful; which populations began a quick decline ca. 1833, presumably from over trapping.

Jackson Hole, Wyoming is named for him.
