Jonathan ("Jon") Cleveland (born December 19, 1970 in Fresno, California) is a former international breaststroke swimmer, who was born in the United States and competed for Canada at three Summer Olympics, starting in 1988 (Seoul, South Korea). He is the son of former Major League Baseball pitcher Reggie Cleveland.

Four years later he won the bronze medal with the Men's 4x100m Medley Relay Team, alongside Mark Tewksbury, Marcel Gery, and Stephen Clarke. His best individual performance was the seventh place at the Seoul Olympics, in the 200m Breaststroke.[1]

Cleveland won gold in the Men's 200m-metre Breaststroke and Medley Relay at the 1990 Commonwealth Games. He later became the head swim coach at Newman Smith High School and later Ranchview High School, located in Texas.
