Jonathon James Casey (born March 29, 1962 in Grand Rapids, Minnesota) is a retired American ice hockey goaltender.

Jon Casey was born in Grand Rapids Minnesota to James and Colleen Casey. He is the second of four children. He played college hockey for the University of North Dakota from 1980–1984 and was part of two NCAA National Championship teams in 1980 and 1982.

Casey spent most of his career with the Minnesota North Stars. In 1989-90, Casey tied Patrick Roy and Daren Puppa for the league lead in wins with 31. In 1993, he was a part of the Campbell Conference's roster at the 44th National Hockey League All-Star Game. Casey would also spend time with the Boston Bruins and St. Louis Blues.

Casey is best remembered for two famous moments when he was scored upon. The first, when Mario Lemieux split two North Stars defensemen (Neil Wilkinson and Shawn Chambers) and scored past Casey in the 1991 Stanley Cup finals. The second came in the 1996 Stanley Cup playoffs when Steve Yzerman scored the game-winning goal in 2OT of Game 7 of the Western Conference semifinals with a long shot from the blue line.
