Shawn Rojeski (born January 21, 1972 in Virginia, Minnesota) is an American curler from Chisholm, Minnesota and Olympic medalist. He was born and raised in Biwabik, Minnesota and attended Mesabi East High School. Under skip Pete Fenson, he received a bronze medal at the 2006 Winter Olympics in Torino, playing as the third.[1] The team was later named the 2006 USOC Team of the Year.

He participated on the American team at the 1998, 2003, 2005, 2006 and 2010 World Curling Championships.

After participating at the 2010 Worlds and finishing in 4th place, he and the rest of the Fenson rink teamed up with Ryan Brunt and went to the 2011 Continental Cup of Curling, where Team North America defeated Team World. He then went to the 2011 US Nationals, where, after remaining undefeated in the round robin, the Fenson rink won the gold medal at the nationals. They represented the United States at the 2011 Ford World Men's Curling Championship in April at Regina, Saskatchewan, finishing with a 3-8 win-loss record at 10th after a series of close losses.
