Jimmy George (born March 8, 1955 in Peravoor, died November 30, 1987) is one of the greatest volleyball players. He was the first Indian volleyball player to become a professional and played club volleyball in Italy.

Jimmy died in a car accident in Italy on November 30, 1987, at the age of 32. His son, Joseph George, was born just two months after his death. Following his death, the Jimmy George Foundation was established, which in 1989 instituted the Jimmy George Award for best sportsperson of Kerala. The foundation also makes available cash awards at St. Joseph's High School, Peravoor, and at Devagiri College.
