Jack David Rogers (b. 1937) is a plant pathologist who spent his career at Washington State University. Rogers was born in Point Pleasant, West Virginia, and earned his Bachelor of Science degree from Davis and Elkins College in West Virginia in 1960. Because of a cooperative program between Davis and Elkins College and Duke University, Rogers was also granted a Master of Forestry degree from Duke in 1960. He then received a Ph.D. in Plant Pathology from the University of Wisconsin in 1963. Rogers began working at WSU in 1963 as an assistant professor and rose to the rank of full professor by 1985.

Over his career Rogers was one of the country's most eminent mycologists, collaborating with numerous scientists across the world and was invited to lectures across Europe, advising over 30 graduate students. He has published hundreds of articles. He even has a fungus named after him: Poroleprieuria rogersii. He was named a WSU Regents Professor (2007) and was recognized with the WSU Eminent Faculty Award (2006), the highest honor a faculty member can receive at WSU. Among his many other awards is the WSU Library Excellence Award (2005). Rogers retired in 2013, after 50 years of service.
