John Sherratt "Black Jack" Stewart (May 6, 1917, in Pilot Mound, Manitoba, Canada – May 25, 1983) was a Canadian professional Defenceman who played for the Detroit Red Wings and Chicago Blackhawks.

Black Jack was one of the key members of the 1943 Red Wing Stanley Cup victory. He also played for the Wings' 1950 Cup Champions, and then served two seasons as the Black Hawks' captain before he retired.

Stewart was one of the hardest hitters and most courageous players in the NHL during his playing days. He was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1964. In 1998, he was ranked number 97 on List of 100 greatest hockey players by The Hockey News.

He died May 25, 1983, of stomach cancer.
