John Randolph Hearst (1909–1958) was an American business executive and the third son of William Randolph Hearst.
He married Gretchen Wilson, who later married Woolworth Donahue (Jesse (Woolworth) Donahue's son).
He was said by some to have the most executive talent among the sons of William Randolph Hearst, and like his brothers worked for the Hearst Corporation.
Any question of his rivaling the non-family executives who constituted a majority of the trustees of his father's will, however, was rendered moot after he died of a heart attack aged 49.[dead link]
