William Ezra Jenner (July 21, 1908 – March 9, 1985) was a U.S.marker Republican Indiana State and U.S. Senator.

Jenner was born in Marengomarker, Crawford County, Indianamarker. He graduated with a Law degree from Indiana University School of Law - Bloomington in 1930, and set up practice in Paoli, Indianamarker. He was elected to the Indiana State Senate in 1934, serving as Minority Leader 1937 – 1939, and Majority Leader and President Pro Tempore 1939 – 1941. To serve in the military upon U.S. entry to World War II, he resigned his seat in 1942. He returned from overseas action to fill a vacancy in the U.S. Senate caused by the death of Frederick Van Nuys and served from November 14, 1944, to January 3, 1945; however, he was not a candidate for election to the full term. He did run for Indiana's Class I seat in the Senate in 1946; he won and was re-elected in 1952.

In Congress, he was a follower of Joseph McCarthy. He charged, "this country today is in the hands of a secret inner coterie which is directed by agents of the Soviet Unionmarker. We must cut this cancerous conspiracy out of our government at once. Our only choice is to impeach President Truman and find out who is the secret invisible government which has so cleverly led our country down the road to destruction." Jenner alleged that the United Nations had infiltrated the American educational system in 1952. In 1958, he was not a candidate for re-nomination. He resumed legal practice in Bedford, Indianamarker in 1959, where he died on March 9, 1985, at seventy six years of age.
