Jaime Oncins (born June 16, 1970 in São Paulo) is a former tennis player from Brazil.

Oncins represented his native country at the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona, where he reached the quarter-finals before falling to Russia's Andrei Cherkasov. The right-hander won two individual career titles (Bologna and Buzios, both in 1992). He reached his highest singles ATP-ranking on May 3, 1993, when he became World No. 34.

Oncins' best performance at a major was at the 1992 French Open, where he reached the Round of 16, losing to eventual finalist, Petr Korda. In the second round of the tournament, Oncins had a famous victory from two sets down against former World No. 1 and 3-time French Open champion, Ivan Lendl. Oncins beat Lendl 3–6, 3–6, 6–3, 6–2, 8–6. Oncins was also the last player that Jimmy Connors beat at the US Open. Connors beat Oncins 6–1, 6–2, 6–3 in the first round of the 1992 US Open, which was on Connors' 40th birthday.
