Jack Zouhary (born 1951) is a United States federal judge on the United States District Court for the Northern District of Ohio.

Zouhary was born and raised in Toledo, Ohio as the son of Lebanese immigrants.[1] He received a B.A. from Dartmouth College in 1973. He received a J.D. from the University of Toledo College of Law in 1976.

He was in private practice in Toledo, Ohio from 2004 to 2005 with the law firm of Fuller & Henry and Robison, Curphey & O'Connell from 1976 to 1999. He was senior vice president and general counsel, S.E. Johnson Companies, Inc. from 2000 to 2003. He was briefly a judge on the Lucas County Court of Common Pleas from 2005 to 2006. Governor Bob Taft appointed Zouhary to the Court of Common Pleas after Zouhary ran unsuccessfully in 2004.[2]

Zouhary was nominated by President George W. Bush on December 14, 2005, to a seat vacated by David A. Katz, upon the recommendation of Senators Mike Dewine and George Voinovich.[3] He was confirmed 96-0 by the United States Senate on March 16, 2006,[4] and he received his commission on March 28, 2006. Since that time, his involvement with a prisoner re-entry program has received media attention.[5]
