Pope Jacob of Alexandria was the Coptic Pope of Alexandria and Patriarch of the See of St. Mark (819 - 830).

Pope Jacob ordained Abuna Yohannes as the head of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church, according to the History of the Patriarchs of Alexandria; however civil war, drought, and plague in Ethiopia forced Yohannes to return to Alexandria, where he remained through Jacob's tenure.
