Huszka Jenő or Jenő Huska born 24 April 1875 Szeged, Csongrád, Dél-Alföld, Magyarország Hungary died 3 February 1960 Budapest, Közép-Magyarország, Hungary was a Hungarian pianist, violinist and composer in a wide variety of mediums.

The father of a Szeged court judge, Huszka or Huszka Ödön (?-?) who became Catholic on his wedding to Etelkát Burger or Burger Etelkát (1855-1922). Ödön taught Huszka the violin.
Huszka was the eldest of the couple's three children. His father often played music at home, mostly playing the flute. Jenő continued his violin studies at the Szeged City Music Hall, where he soon became known for his talent. He also learned to play the piano on his own, though he was not encouraged by his parents.

When he was a student, he wrote two theatrical works, one of which was 'Párbajhősök' 'Dueling Heroes', never staged, and 'Levél' 'The Letter'. The latter was rejected by Ede Paulay (1836-1894) of the National Theater Nemzeti Színház.

After graduation, he went to Pest in 1893 to study law, but also enrolled at the Music Academy, where he became a student of Jenő Hubay Huber Jenő (1858-1937) and János Koessler or Koessler János or Hans von Koessler or Hans von Kößler (1853-1926).
At that time he was also involved in concert organization, and at one of his concerts, the 18-year-old Ernő Dohnányi Dohnányi Ernő Jenő Frigyes (1877-1960) first appeared in public.
In 1896 he graduated with both legal and musical studies. Although appointed as a freelance trainee at the Ministry of Religion and Education, he applied for one year of unpaid leave to travel to Paris. He was the first violinist in the Lamoureux band touring with them in London.

He returned home in 1897 and entered the ministry. There he met Ferenc Martos Martos Ferenc or Martos Mittelmann (1875-1938), who later became his librettist.
In 1898 he premiered his first theatrical work: 'Tilos a bemenet!' 'Input is forbidden!' was written by Adolf Mérei or Mérei Adolf or Merkl Adolf (1877-1918).
He met Fedák Sári or Fedák Sarolta Klára Mária Sari Fedas (1879-1955), who was unknown at the time, and wrote his next play for her.
'Bob herceg' 'Prince Bob', introduced on 20 December 1902, became a huge success; it was the first Hungarian operetta to be broadcast abroad.

He married his first wife, Lippich Leona or Leona Lippich (?-?), on 30 September 1906. They had two children, Eve Jenő and Lilly Jenő.
In 1921 they separated.
His second wife was Erzsébet Alexandra Margit Mária Aranyi (1897-1977), whom he married in 1928. They had one child, Jenő (1930-?).

Jenő Huszka died of pneumonia on 2 February 1960 at 2am. His tomb is in the Farkasréti temető Farkasrét Cemetery, Budapest, Németvölgyi út 99, 1124 Hungary.
