Crataegus jesupii ranges from Wisconsin to Connecticut, Ohio, and Pennsylvania.

In Michigan, Crataegus jesupii is notable for its stipitate-glandular bracteoles. Forms with wider leaves, about as wide as long, are represented by C. filipes. An otherwise identical Ontario specimen has 20 stamens and would key out to C. beata.
