Geoff Jenkins (born July 21, 1974 in Olympia, Washington) is an outfielder in Major League Baseball who is currently a free agent. He previously played for the Milwaukee Brewers from 1998 until 2007 and the Philadelphia Phillies in 2008. Jenkins is second on the Brewers all-time career home run list trailing only Hall-of-Famer Robin Yount.

Jenkins attended Cordova High School in Rancho Cordova, California, where he played football, basketball, and baseball. He was selected for the all-state baseball team as a junior and senior before graduating in 1992.

At USC, Jenkins had a standout career from 1993 through 1995. In his final season, he batted .399 with 78 RBI and a .748 slugging percentage in 70 games, also scoring 75 runs to tie the school record held by Rich Dauer and Mark McGwire; his 23 home runs and 193 total bases ranked second in school history behind McGwire's 1984 totals of 32 and 216. He led the Trojans to the College World Series, where they reached the championship game; Jenkins was named to the all-CWS team, and also earned team co-MVP honors and was named a consensus All-American. In 1996, the year of the CWS' 50th tournament, Jenkins was named to the all-decade team for the 1990s. He finished his USC career with a .369 batting average, 45 home runs (second only to McGwire's 54), a .652 slugging percentage, 180 runs, and school records for runs batted in (175) and total bases (444).
