Jess Thomas (August 4, 1927, Hot Springs, South Dakota-October 11, 1993, San Francisco, California) was an American operatic tenor, best known for his Wagner singing. As a child he took part in various musical activities and later studied psychology at the University of Nebraska and Stanford University. He was awarded the Wagner medal at Bayreuth, Germany in 1963. His many appearances in North America and Europe between the late 1950s and early 1980s included 15 seasons in 109 performances of 15 roles at the Metropolitan Opera in New York City. Thomas made his operatic debut in 1957 for the San Francisco Opera performing in Der Rosenkavalier as the Haushofmeister. In 1958, he debuted in the title role of Lohengrin for the Karlsruhe Staatstheater at the commencement of a career in Germany.
