Jakusho Kwong-roshi is an American Zen Buddhist teacher of the Soto sect who studied with Shunryu Suzuki-roshi, the author of Zen Mind Beginner's Mind. Jakusho is his Buddhist name, his given name being Bill Kwong. Kwong-roshi has received Dharma transmission from Suzuki-roshi's son, Hoitsu.

Kwong-roshi and his wife Laura 'Shinko' Kwong together founded the Sonoma Mountain Zen Center in California. The center's main temple is named Genjo-Ji, which is inspired by the essay Genjo Koan by the 13th century Japanese Zen Master Dogen.

Kwong-roshi has established affiliated Zen centers in Iceland and Poland, and conducts meditation retreats (sesshins) there yearly.

Kwong-roshi is the author of the book, No Beginning No End.
