Jane Ellen Swagerty Hill (born July 30, 1951), née Jane Ellen Swagerty, is an American former competition swimmer and Olympic medalist. Swagerty represented the United States at the 1968 Summer Olympics in Mexico City. Swagerty received a bronze medal for her third-place finish in the women's 100-meter backstroke. She also swam the backstroke leg in the preliminary heats of the women's 100-meter medley relay for the gold medal-winning U.S. team, but did not receive a medal under the 1968 international swimming rules because she did not swim in the event final.[1]

Swagerty is the cousin of former professional basketball player Keith Swagerty.[2]
