Graham Jessop (born 5 June 1957) is a British commercial diver and marine archaeologist who has taken part in a number of important expeditions such as the 1999 discovery of the remains of the RMS Carpathia off the coast of Ireland. Jessop subsequently purchased the Carpathia, so as to control access and protect it from private scavengers.
He was born in Yorkshire.
In 2000, RMS Titanic Inc. named Jessop as the recovery manager of the wreck of the Titanic.
