John 'Jack' Pemberton (born 25 January 1889) was an Australian rules footballer who played with Richmond in the Victorian Football League (VFL).

Pemberton made three senior appearances for Richmond in their inaugural VFL season, all of which they lost. He returned to the scene in 1931 as coach of North Melbourne and was in charge for eight games. North Melbourne lost each of them as well, meaning that Pemberton failed to experience a win either as a player or coach.
