John Charles "Johnny" Jameson (born 11 March 1958, Belfast) is a former Northern Ireland international footballer who played for Glentoran.

During his club career he played for Bangor, Huddersfield Town, Linfield, and Glentoran. He was part of the team at the 1982 FIFA World Cup when Northern Ireland reached the second round. However, he did not earn any senior caps, as his deeply held religious beliefs restricted his international career as he refused to play on a Sunday.

Like a number of professional Northern Irish footballers Jameson hailed from Rathcoole, near Belfast.
