Jacob Symonsz of Delft, was a Dutch Anabaptist preacher of whom not much is known. He is said to have been a learned man. In March 1534 he was arrested at Bergklooster as a leader of the 3,000 Anabaptists who had arrived there en route to Münster, having sailed from Amsterdam. He was beheaded at Amsterdam on 30 March 1534. A hymn written by Jacob Simonsz is found in the Geestelyck Lietboecxken van D(avid) J(oris).
