Jason Michael Zimmerman is an American visual effects (VFX) artist, who has served as VFX supervisor for Star Trek: Discovery, four episodes of Star Trek: Short Treks, and lead VFX supervisor and supervising producer for Star Trek: Picard.

In these positions Zimmerman is, along with his former Pixomondo colleague Ante Dekovic, fulfilling the exact same roles for Kurtzman-era Star Trek as their illustrious predecessors Dan Curry and Ronald B. Moore had respectively fulfilled for Berman-era Star Trek, especially when that era's veteran VFX staffer David Takemura did not return to the franchise after Discovery's first season.

Zimmerman's name was referenced on the dedication plaques of the USS Shenzhou, USS Discovery, USS Enterprise (as it appeared in "Such Sweet Sorrow"), as well as a mirror counterpart on the plaque of the ISS Discovery.

He was nominated for an Emmy in 2019 for Outstanding Visual Effects for his work on "Such Sweet Sorrow, Part 2", [1] and in 2021 for his work on DIS: "Su'Kal", the latter one he won. [2] This was accompanied by two similar 2018 and 2021 VES Award nominations for DIS: "The Vulcan Hello", "Su'Kal". All these he shared with Dekovic, among others.

He made guest appearances on segments of The Ready Room in "Absolute Candor" and "Die Trying".
