John Weld Peck (February 5, 1874 – August 10, 1937) was a United States federal judge.

Born in Wyoming, Ohio, Peck received an A.B. from Harvard University in 1896 and an LL.B. from the University of Cincinnati College of Law in 1898. He was in private practice in Cincinnati, Ohio from 1898 to 1919.

On October 30, 1919, Peck was nominated by President Woodrow Wilson to a seat on the United States District Court for the Southern District of Ohio vacated by Howard Clark Hollister. Peck was confirmed by the United States Senate on November 5, 1919, and received his commission the same day. Peck served in that capacity until April 3, 1923, when he resigned. He then returned to private practice in Cincinnati until his death, in 1937.
