John Edwin Luecke is an American mathematician who works in topology and knot theory. He got his Ph.D. in 1985 from the University of Texas at Austin and is now a professor in the department of mathematics at that institution.
Luecke specializes in knot theory and 3-manifolds. In a 1987 paper Luecke, Marc Culler, Cameron Gordon, and Peter Shalen proved the cyclic surgery theorem. In a 1989 paper Luecke and Cameron Gordon proved that knots are determined by their complements, a result now known as the Gordon–Luecke theorem.
