Jess Thomas (1927 –1993) was an American operatic tenor, best known for his Wagner singing.
At age 27 Thomas decided to change careers and to become a singer. He studied intensively with Schulmann for three years before his operatic debut in 1957. 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.
He died in San Francisco, California in 1993, aged 66.
