Josiah Robins (Jo) Bonner, Jr. (born November 19, 1959) is the U.S. Representative for Alabama's 1st congressional district, serving since 2003. He is a member of the Republican Party.

Bonner was born in Selma, Alabama (but was raised in Camden, Alabama), to Imogene Virginia Lyons and Josiah Robins Bonner. He was educated at the University of Alabama, graduating in 1982. Two years later he started working as campaign press secretary for Congressman Sonny Callahan, a Republican representing Alabama's 1st district. In 1989 Bonner was promoted to Callahan's chief of staff and moved to Mobile. From this position he was positioned to run for the seat after Callahan's retirement just before the June 2002 primary election. During that primary, despite having six opponents, including Tom Young, chief of staff to Senator Richard Shelby, Bonner won by a wide margin.

Bonner has served as a member of the board of directors for the Mobile Area Chamber of Commerce, Rotary Club, Leadership Mobile, and the Mobile Chapter of the University of Alabama Alumni Association. In 2000, the College of Communications at The University of Alabama honored him as their Outstanding Alumnus in Public Relations. He was a member of Leadership Mobile, Class of 2000, where his classmates elected him co-president.
