Jack Steinberger (born May 25, 1921) is a physicist. He co-discovered the muon neutrino. He won a Nobel Prize in Physics in 1988.

Steinberger was born in the city of Bad Kissingen in Bavaria, Germany, but left at the age of 13, due to the increasing anti-Semitism of the rising Nazi party. He moved to the United States, where he lived for many years, before moving to Switzerland to work at CERN. He is well known for giving his Nobel Prize to New Trier High School of which he is an alumnus.
