John Bennett Ramsey (born December 7, 1943) is the father of homicide victim JonBenét Ramsey. He was the first to discover JonBenét's body in the wine cellar of the Ramseys' 15-room home in Boulder, Colorado, on December 26, 1996, just hours after her murder.

Ramsey was born in Lincoln, Nebraska to Mary Jane (née Bennett) and James Dudley "Jay" Ramsey. His net worth was reported at $6.4 million as of May 1, 1996. He graduated from Michigan State University. A distinguished naval officer, he holds a pilot's license and owns two planes. In 1989, late in his military career, he formed the Advanced Product Group, one of three companies that merged to become Access Graphics. After mandatory military retirement, he became president and chief executive officer of Access Graphics, a computer services company and a subsidiary of Lockheed Martin. In 1996, Access Graphics grossed over $1 billion, and he was named "Entrepreneur of the Year" by the Boulder Chamber of Commerce. Immediately following the murder he was "temporarily replaced so the company did not have to bother him about business matters as he grieved", according to Lockheed spokesman Evan McCollum. Ramsey soon left his job to move his family to Michigan, where he joined another computer company. Access Graphics was later sold to General Electric in 1997.

Ramsey's wife Patsy died June 24, 2006 of ovarian cancer. Ramsey's oldest daughter, Elizabeth Pasch Ramsey, from his first marriage died in a 1992 car accident at the age of 22.
