Jean Bodman Fletcher (January 20, 1915 - September 13, 1965) was an American architect who was a founding member of the legendary design firm known as TAC, the Architects' Collaborative in Cambridge, Massachusetts. She was born Jean Bodman in Boston and graduated from Smith College in 1937. Her architectural training was conducted at the Cambridge School in 1941, an architecture school for women affiliated with Harvard University and Smith.
With her husband, Norman Collings Fletcher she entered and won many residential architecture competitions. In 1945, the Fletchers joined forces with their mentor, Walter Gropius, and five other young architects, including Sarah Harkness and John C. Harkness, to establish TAC. The prize money from their winning entries in the Smith College Dormitory Competition provided the first office funds.
