Jámison Olave (born April 21, 1981 in Medellín) is a Colombian footballer who currently plays for Real Salt Lake in Major League Soccer.

Olave played for a multitude of clubs in his native Colombia, before returning to his first club, Deportivo Cali. In January 2008, he accepted an offer to join Real Salt Lake on a one-year loan deal with an option for the club to buy at the end of the season.

On October 9, 2008, Olave scored the first goal at Real's inaugural game at brand new Rio Tinto Stadium, which helped his team tie New York Red Bulls 1-1 to keep their playoff hopes alive. On November 24, 2008 Olave agreed to a permanent contract with Real Salt Lake that will keep him through the 2012 Major League Soccer season. He was in the starting XI at the 2010 MLS All-Star Game. Olave is widely regarded one of the best center backs that Major League Soccer has to offer. His presence on set pieces, and intimidating stature helped him secure Major League Soccer's 2010 Defender of the year.
