Matías Maximiliano Jara (born April 6, 1987 in Buenos Aires) is an Argentine footballer.


Jara started playing for the Comisión de Actividades Infantiles, a team from the southern city of Comodoro Rivadavia. He was an important part of the team that avoided relegation from the Primera B Nacional (second division) during the 2007-08 season after defeating Patronato in the relegation playoff. Jara scored two goals on the second game to secure the 5-1 overall victory.[1]

Jara joined Godoy Cruz in the Argentine First Division for the 2009-10 season.[2] He scored the first goal of the Apertura tournament on Godoy Cruz' victory 2-0 over Gimnasia y Esgrima de La Plata.[3] He also scored one goal and assisted in another in Godoy Cruz' historical 3-2 victory against Boca Juniors in the Bombonera stadium.[4]

In January 2010 Jara joined Chilean side Huachipato.[5] However, he returned to his home country in August of that same year, joining second division side Chacarita Juniors.

Jara signed with FC Dallas of Major League Soccer on August 7, 2012.[6] However, he was released just three months later without making a first team appearance.[7]
