Jeffrey Baxter Stollmeyer (11 March 1921 – 10 September 1989) was a Trinidad and Tobago cricketer and footballer. He played 32 Tests for the West Indies, captaining 13 of these.
Stollmeyer was born in Santa Cruz, Trinidad. He played in his first Test at the age of eighteen and made a 59 in his debut innings at Lord's. Stollmeyer gained the captaincy during the 1951/2 tour of Australia after John Goddard stood down in that series. He retained the captaincy during the West Indies' next three series, all of which were played at home.
After his playing career, Stollmeyer had a long and distinguished career in cricket administration. He served as President of the West Indies Board of Control from 1974 until 1981, a tenure distinguished by his opposition to Kerry Packer's World Series Cricket. In 1979 he was awarded Trinidad and Tobago's Chaconia Medal (Gold).
In June 1988 Stollmeyer was celebrated on the $2.50 Trinidad and Tobago stamp alongside the Barbados Cricket Buckle.
Stollmeyer died in a hospital in Melbourne, Florida, after suffering wounds from home invaders in his home in Port-of-Spain.
His nephew, John, is a former footballer who played 31 games for the United States.
- Stollmeyer's 1983 autobiography is entitled Everything Under the Sun.
- Jeff Stollmeyer's older brother Vic also played Test cricket for the West Indies.
- Jeff Stollmeyer's older brother Hugh Stollmeyer was one of Trinidad's great painters. His work was very influential towards the Caribbean art movement.
