Timothy John "Tim" Ryan (born July 16, 1973) is an American politician and Democratic member of the United States House of Representatives, representing Ohio's 17th congressional district since 2003.

Tim Ryan was born in Niles, Ohio and graduated from John F. Kennedy High School in Warren, where he played football as a quarterback. He received a Bachelor of Arts degree in political science from Bowling Green State University in 1995 and was a member of Delta Tau Delta fraternity. In 2000, he earned a Juris Doctor degree from Franklin Pierce Law Center in Concord, New Hampshire.

Ryan served on the staff of controversial congressman Jim Traficant (D-Ohio) in the mid-1990s. From 2000 to 2002 he served a term in the Ohio State Senate. After Traficant was convicted on criminal charges in 2002, Ryan declared his candidacy for the Congressional seat of his home district.
