Jayson Truitt Nix(born August 26, 1982 in Dallas, Texas) is a Major League Baseball Utility player for the Toronto Blue Jays. The Colorado Rockies selected Nix as a sandwich pick (44th overall) between the first and second rounds of the 2001 Major League Baseball Draft as compensation for not signing their first round pick in the 2000 Major League Baseball Draft (Matt Harrington). He is the younger brother of Laynce Nix, who plays for the Washington Nationals.

Nix was born in Dallas, Texas, and still makes his offseason home there. He attended Midland High School in Midland, Texas, the hometown of First Lady Laura Bush, a point that President George W. Bush made to his wife while meeting with the Olympic team on August 11, 2008, in Beijing.

Nix began the 2008 season as the Colorado Rockies starting second baseman but over the next month, he saw his playing time diminish. On April 26, 2008, Nix was designated for assignment. He had played in 17 games and batted .111 with no home runs. On April 30 he cleared waivers and was sent outright to Triple-A.
