Jacob Wheeler is a character appearing in the episode The Curse of the Ninth of the ITV crime drama Midsomer Murders.

The real Jacob Wheeler was killed accidentally approximately 13 years prior to the events of the episode The Curse of the Ninth and his body was left in the underground tunnels located underneath the facility used for a summer youth camp. The boy who accidentally killed Jacob, Dan Falconer, made up a story about seeing Jacob run away and board a bus.

Several years prior to the events of the episode, a computer hacking expert, Leon Hunt, began to impersonate Jacob Wheeler in order to get a portion of the family inheritance. He convinced everyone except for Jacob's sister, Natalie who killed him by strangling him with a string from his violin.
