I haven't seen one... eSATA isn't like USB... it's a serial protocol which means it has to have a point-to-point connection with the host controller. In other words, the only way to add eSATA ports is to get an eSATA PCI or PCIe card.
Here are a few:

eSATA bracket for connecting to extra ports on motherboard
