Jose Coye (born 1942) is a Belizean politician and a member of the People's United Party (PUP). He trained as a Chartered Accountant and worked as a customs officer before going into politics.

Coye was mayor of Belize City from 1995 until 1998, and was a founding member of the Belize Mayors Association. He was elected to the House of Representatives of Belize in 1998, representing the Caribbean Shores constituency of Belize District. In 2004, he was among seven ministers who resigned from Prime Minister Said Musa's cabinet over a funding dispute involving social security money. However, Coye was reinstated to cabinet after negotiations with the Prime Minister and other ministers of government. In the 2008 General Election, Coye was defeated by Carlos Perdomo (UDP) in the Caribbean Shores. Coye lost his bid for the division in April 2011 after he was defeated by Mr. Anthony Mahler in a PUP constituency convention.
