Jean le Plae (Jan de Pla), was a preacher of the French-speaking Mennonite Waterlander congrega­tion of Leiden, Holland. He was chosen to the office before 1630, and was still serving in 1647, when as a delegate from his congregation he at­tended a Waterlander conference held at Amster­dam. He also intermediated in the schism of 1627 in the Amsterdam Waterlander congregation be­tween Nittert Obbes and his co-preachers.
