Jean-Jacques Kieffer (1857 Guinkirchen–1925 Bitche) was a French naturalist and entomologist who specialised in the study of parasitic insects. Educated as a priest, Kieffer taught natural science in Bitche, Lorraine while working on the description and classification of insects. His work and publications later became a predominant source of description and classification for entomologists in the early 20th century, in particular with regard to parasitoid wasps, midges[1] and mosquitos.[2]

Kieffer received an honorary Doctor honoris causa degree from the University of Strasbourg in 1904.
