Orville Lee (born April 4, 1964, in Ocho Rios, Jamaica) is a retired Canadian Football League running back.

He was drafted by the Ottawa Rough Riders with the first overall pick in the 1988 CFL Draft from Simon Fraser University. In his rookie year he racked up 1075 rushing yards to lead the CFL becoming only the fourth Canadian (Normie Kwong, Gerry James and Ron Stewart being the others) to accomplish that feat. He would go onto play for the Saskatchewan Roughriders and Hamilton Tiger-Cats before retiring in 1992.[1][2] His son, Jamall Lee is a member of the BC Lions.

He now runs a non-profit organization called Pathfinder Youth Center Society, for at Risk Kids in BC Canada, along with his wife Ruth Lee.
