Jean Marie Berveiller (1904 – October 21, 1976) was a French composer and organist.

Jean Berveiller studied the pipe organ with Marcel Dupré. He wrote four jazz-inspired organ compositions: Suite (1947), Cadénce: Étude de concert, Épitaphe (1951), and Mouvement (1953). All these works were dedicated to Jeanne Demessieux, who frequently performed Berveiller's compositions in her organ recitals. Jeanne Demessieux dedicated her organ cycle, Sept Méditations sur le Saint-Esprit, opus 6, to Jean Berveiller.
