Jerome Schutzer (born January 11, 1930) is an American lawyer and politician from New York.
Schutzer was born on January 11, 1930, in the East Bronx, New York City, the son of Louis Schutzer and Fannie (Luxenberg) Schutzer. He graduated from Stuyvesant High School in 1948; from City College of New York; and from Brooklyn Law School in 1953. In 1950, he married Harriet Mohr, daughter of Assemblyman Morris Mohr (1907–1956), and they had four children.
He was a member of the New York State Senate (33rd D.) in 1966. His principal issues included rent control, Medicare for senior citizens, free tuition at City College of New York, and greater safety for school children. He ran under the campaign slogan "My position is no tuition". In 1966 after re-apportionment, he ran in the Democratic primary of the 30th District for re-nomination, but was defeated by Harrison J. Goldin.
Afterwards, Schutzer worked as Executive Assistant in the Public Affairs Department for The New York Telephone Company. In 1985, he was serving as Assistant Vice President-Legislative Counsel for the New York Telephone Company.
He currently resides in Wellington, Florida.
