Jerome Irving Rodale (August 16, 1898 June 8, 1971) was a publisher, editor, author, playwright, and founder of Rodale, Inc.

Rodale was an early advocate of sustainable agriculture and organic farming in the United States. As an author, his work included several magazines and books, including books featuring different authors, on the subject of health. He popularized the term "organic" as a term for growing food without pesticides. Rodale also published works on other topics, including The Synonym Finder.

Rodale died after suffering a fatal heart attack on-camera. While appearing as a guest on a segment of The Dick Cavett Show, that subsequently never aired, he slumped back in his seat and became unresponsive. He was taken to Roosevelt Hospital Center and was pronounced dead on arrival at the age of 72.
