John Francis "Jess" Cortazzo (September 26, 1904 – March 4, 1963) also known as "Shine" was a professional baseball player. He was a shortstop for one season (1923) with the Chicago White Sox. For his career, he appeared in one game and was retired in his only at bat.

Jess' only game came on September 1, 1923, as an unsuccessful pinch-hitter for pitcher Red Faber in the 5th inning of a Chicago White Sox rain-shortened blowout win over the Cleveland Indians. Incidentally, he was the youngest player to appear in the big leagues that year.

He was born in Wilmerding, Pennsylvania and died in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania at the age of 58.
