Jerry Hsu (born December 17, 1981) is an American professional skateboarder and photographer. He was described by professional skateboarder and longtime friend Marc Johnson as a “cool breeze” in 2013. As of 2007, Hsu's family home remains located in San Jose, California, United States (U.S.). Hsu's family is originally from Taiwan, and his parents speak both English and Mandarin Chinese. Hsu explained in 2010 that his Chinese-language fluency is akin to a “third grader.”

Hsu commenced skateboarding in the early 1990s and he explained what he was attracted by in a 2013 interview: “I remember the reason I started skating was because I saw these kids with green hair and big pants and they looked so stupid, and I wanted to be that.” His mother brought home a discarded concrete parking block during his early period of skateboarding and he later regarded the gesture as “very thoughtful.”
