Jo Maso (born 27 December 1944 in Perpignan, France) is a former rugby union and rugby league footballer who played centre for Narbonne, Toulonnais, Perpignan and France, gaining 25 caps. His alternative position was fly-half. He is now the manager for the French national team and was inducted into the International Rugby Hall of Fame in 2003.

Maso started his rugby career as a rugby league player for XIII Catalan, being the son of the French rugby league internationalist Jep Maso. However, he switched to union and made his debut for France in a Test against Italy in Naples in 1966. He also toured Australia, New Zealand and South Africa with the national side and played three times for the Barbarians.
