Ewen Thomas Jones (born 7 March 1960) is a former Australian politician representing the division of Herbert for the Liberal National Party from the 2010 federal election until the 2016 federal election.
On 18 July 2016, at the conclusion of vote counting for the 2016 election, Labor's Cathy O'Toole appeared to have defeated Jones by 8 votes, triggering an automatic recount. The recount and subsequent distribution of preferences gave O'Toole a margin of 37 votes. It represented the first time that Labor had won Herbert since the 1993 federal election.
