Jonathan Thomas Cleveland (born December 19, 1970) is a former competition swimmer and breaststroke specialist who was born in the United States and competed for Canada at three Summer Olympics, starting in 1988.

Four years later he won the bronze medal with the Canadian team in the men's 4x100-metre medley relay, together with Mark Tewksbury, Marcel Gery and Stephen Clarke. His best individual performance was the seventh place, at the 1988 Summer Olympics in Seoul, in the 200-metre breaststroke.[1]

Cleveland won gold medals in the men's 200-metre breaststroke and 4x100-metre medley relay at the 1990 Commonwealth Games. He became the head swim coach at Newman Smith High School, and later at Ranchview High School, located in Texas.

Cleveland is the son of former Major League Baseball pitcher Reggie Cleveland.
