Karl Gustaf Jonsson (7 July 1903 – 30 July 1990) was a Swedish cross country skier. He competed in the 50 km event at the 1928 and 1932 Olympics and won a silver medal in 1928, finishing ninth four years later.
At the Nordic World Ski Championships he placed fourth-fifth in the 30 km and 50 km events in 1926 and 1929. In 1930 he finished second in the Vasa run, and in 1925 won the national 30 km title.
During his career Jonsson was considered a waxing expert, and later became a ski wax producer. He was featured in the 1988 documentary film De sista skidåkarna (The Last Skiers).
