We deal with the finite-time control problem for discrete-time Markov jump systems subject to saturating actuators. A finite-state Markovian process is given to govern the transition of the jumping parameters. A controller designed for unconstrained systems combined with a dynamic antiwindup compensator is given to guarantee that the resulting system is mean-square locally asymptotically finite-time stabilizable. The proposed conditions allow us to find dynamic anti-windup compensator which stabilize the closed-loop systems in the finite-time sense. All these conditions can be expressed in the form of linear matrix inequalities and therefore are numerically tractable, as shown in the example included in the paper.
