Jonas V. Villanueva (born March 31, 1983) is a Filipino professional basketball player currently playing for the NLEX Road Warriors in the Philippine Basketball Association. Born in Bulacan, Philippines, he played for the FEU Tamaraws in which he helped the University to claim its 19th UAAP Men's Basketball Championship in its 68th season alongside Mark Isip, R.J. Rizada, Jeffrei Chan and former San Miguel teammate Arwind Santos.

He was selected 9th overall during the 2008 PBA draft by the San Miguel Beermen. He struggled as he played a backup role under longtime veteran Olsen Racela. But then, he was promoted as the team's starting point guard when former no. 1 draft pick Mike Cortez fell into a season-ending injury and the team's long-time floor leader Olsen Racela's game starting to fade away.

In the 2008–09 PBA season, he was awarded the Most Improved Player award. He won the Fern-C Finals MVP honor after winning the 2009 PBA Fiesta Conference Championship with San Miguel.[1]

He was appointed as the new captain of the team starting this season.
