Jeffrey Lane "Jeff" Flake (born December 31, 1962) is the U.S. Representative for Arizona's 6th congressional district, serving since 2001. He is a member of the Republican Party.

Flake was born in Snowflake, Arizona (named in part for his great-great-grandfather, Mormon pioneer William J. Flake), was educated at Brigham Young University and was a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to South Africa in the early 1980s. He worked in the public affairs sector after college and served as Executive Director of the Foundation for Democracy in Namibia and Executive Director of the Goldwater Institute before entering the House.
