Jon Marsh (born 1965 Camberwell, London) was a semi-finalist from Series 12.

He was a self-employed singer/songwriter, and in 1986 had founded the electronic dance music group "The Beloved", who went on to score several UK Top 40 hit singles in the 1990s. He beat Martin Loughran in his first appearance, and won a further seven games to become an octochamp and #1 seed for the series. Jon beat Stephen Haggerty in the quarter-final, but lost to Steve Balment in the semi-final.

Jon returned for Championship of Champions III, but was soundly beaten by John Clarke in the first round.
