Jeanne Clare Adams (June 15, 1921–April 21, 2007) was an American computer scientist. She was Chairman of the ANSI X3J3 Fortran Standards Committee that "developed the controversial Fortran 8X proposal".

Her longest held position was at the National Center for Atmospheric Research, Boulder, Colorado, during 1960-1981, and then during 1984-1997, as deputy head of the Computing Division. Adams was also chair of the International Standards Organization Committee on Programming Languages (TC97/SC5), now ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 7 and the ANSI Fortran Standards Committee (X3J3).
