The Hon. Jayne C. Lee is a judge for the San Joaquin County Superior Court in California. She was appointed to the bench by Governor Gavin Newsom in 2019. At the time, she filled the vacancy created by the retirement of the Hon. Stephen Scott (Ret.).

She is a registered Democrat.

After graduating from law school, Lee began her legal career as a lecturer (1991 to 1993) and legal consultant (1993 to 1995) at Stanford Law School.
