Jérémy Gavanon (born 20 September 1983 in Marseille) is a French footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for AS Cannes.


He signed a professional contract with Olympique Marseille in the summer of 2003, and made his first start for the club in a UEFA Champions League group match against FK Partizan, which resulted in a 1–1 draw and a place in the UEFA Cup. He also appeared in the 2004 UEFA Cup Final against Valencia as a substitute, after Barthez was sent off. He would make only 10 league appearances in two years, however, and with the signing of Fabien Barthez, the club decided to loan out Gavanon to Clermont to gain some first-team experience. He made 22 league appearances for Clermont during the 2005–06 season. He transferred to Sochaux after the season ended. On 29 May 2009, FC Sochaux have released the goalkeeper along with defenders Olivier Thomas and Hakim El Bounadi and Brazilian-born Tunisian international striker Francileudo Santos.


Gavanon was also a regular player for the France national under-21 football team, and he was a member of the 24-man squad selected for the European Under-21 Football Championship, held in the summer of 2006.
