Jehan A. Gordon (born 1981)[1] is a Democratic member of the Illinois House of Representatives, representing the 92nd district since 2009.

Gordon-Booth was born and raised in Peoria County, Illinois, where she attended Limestone High School in Bartonville, and attended Parkland College and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.[2]

Gordon-Booth was on the Pleasant Hill School District 69 Board of Education before her election to the Illinois House.[2]

Gordon-Booth was elected in November 2008 to the seat being vacated by Aaron Schock. She defeated Joan Krupa, but Krupa was appointed to the seat to fill the remaining nine days of Schock's term when Schock became U.S. Representative for Illinois' 18th congressional district.[3]
