Johannes "Jan" Thomée (December 4, 1886 – April 1, 1954) was a Dutch football (soccer) player.

He was born and died in Delft.

He was a member of the Dutch team that won the bronze medal in the football tournament of the 1908 Summer Olympics.

Thomée became the all-time top scorer for the Netherlands on 1910-10-16. His goal against Germany was his eleventh goal for the Netherlands, breaking the record that Edu Snethlage had held since 1909-03-21. He improved his record by scoring against Belgium on 1911-03-19, by scoring two goals against Belgium on 1912-03-10, and by scoring two goals against Germany on 1912-03-24. Thomée's record would be broken on 1913-03-09, when Mannes Francken of Koninklijke HFC scored his 17th goal for the Netherlands, in a match against Belgium.

He is still one of few people who joined the National team while still playing second class football at DSV Concordia.[1]
