Jerry DeFuccio (July 3, 1925 – August 10, 2001) was an American comic book writer and editor, known primarily for his work at Mad, where he was an associate editor for 25 years. In addition to his work on that magazine, he was closely involved in many of the Mad paperbacks, editing Clods' Letters to Mad and many other reprints and spin-offs. Some of his contributions to EC Comics appeared under the pseudonym Jerry Dee.

At EC Comics during the early 1950s, DeFuccio was an assistant editor and researcher on Harvey Kurtzman's war comics, Frontline Combat and Two-Fisted Tales, research that on one day involved taking a trip underwater in a submarine. He wrote scripts for EC and also contributed one-page text pieces to several EC titles. For Frontline Combat he wrote "War Dance!" and "Belts n' Celts" (both illustrated by John Severin) and "Wolf!" (illustrated by Wally Wood). He later wrote scripts for the line of war comics published by DC Comics, including Star Spangled War and Our Fighting Forces.

DeFuccio's book introductions include Bud Blake's Tiger (Grosset & Dunlap, 1969). As an expert on comic book history, he contributed to such publications as Squa Tront, Graphic Story Magazine, The Comics Journal, Wonderworld and The Comic Book Price Guide. He also worked briefly for Mad's rival, Cracked, after leaving Mad. DeFuccio died of cancer on August 10, 2001.
