Jacobus Nicolaas Scheepers (born 27 February 1990) is a South African rugby union footballer. His regular playing position is either full-back or winger. He represents the Griffons in the Currie Cup competition, having previously played for the Free State Cheetahs and Griquas. He also made three appearances for the Cheetahs during the 2012 Super Rugby season and played Varsity Cup rugby for UFS Shimlas.

He joined Griquas on loan for the 2013 Currie Cup Premier Division competition,[1] eventually remaining in Kimberley until the end of 2014.

Scheepers then retired from rugby to return to his family's citrus and potato farm, but reversed his decision a few months later to join Welkom-based side Griffons for the 2015 Currie Cup First Division.[2]

He joined Wellington-based side Boland Cavaliers for the 2016 season.[3]
