Jairo Martínez (born May 14, 1978) is a Honduran football player. His position is forward.

Martínez most notably played for Coventry City between 2000 and 2002, although he rarely appeared for the first team. He was part of the team that were relegated from the Premier League in 2001, although he never made an appearance that season. The manager at the time, Gordon Strachan, was criticised for making poor signings and Martínez was seen as one of them by the Coventry fans, as well as his compatriot Iván Guerrero who was brought to the club around the same time.

Martínez has also appeared for the Honduran national team several times and was part of the squad that competed at the 2000 Summer Olympics. He also notably scored four goals in a friendly against Slovenia in February 2002.[1]
