The Jackson Street Railway was a street railway company in Jackson, Michigan.

It was promoted and constructed by Hiram H. and his son Dwight.[1]

Also invested in the company was Congressman John B. Corliss.

The line went bankrupt in 1897, and William A. Foote, the owner of the Jackson Electric Light Co. and principal creditor to the JSR, was appointed receiver. The company was sold in 1900.
