Samuel Dillon Jackson (May 28, 1895 – March 8, 1951) was a United States Senator from Indiana. Born near Zanesville, Indiana, he attended the public schools of Fort Wayne and graduated from Indiana University Law School at Indianapolis, gaining admission to the bar the same year. During the First World War, he served as a captain of infantry from 1917 to 1919, and engaged in the practice of law at Fort Wayne in 1919. He was prosecuting attorney of Allen County from 1924 to 1928. He ran unsuccessfully as a Democrat for election in 1928 to the Seventy-first Congress, and was attorney general of Indiana from 1940 to 1941. On January 28, 1944, he was appointed as a Democrat to the U.S. Senate to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Frederick Van Nuys and served from January 28, 1944, to November 13, 1944, when a duly elected successor qualified. Jackson was not a candidate for election to fill the vacancy, and was an unsuccessful Democratic candidate for Governor of Indiana in 1944.
