Jean Dupong (18 May 1922 – 6 December 2007) was a Luxembourgish politician. A member of the Christian Social People's Party (CSV), Dupong held a number of positions in government and within the party.

Dupong was first elected to the Chamber of Deputies in the 1954 election. He would be re-elected until his retirement from the Chamber in 1979.[1] During this time, he was a member of Pierre Werner's cabinet from 1967 to 1974, including as Minister for Justice from 1967 to 1969. Dupong was also President of the CSV from 1965 to 1972.[1]

Dupong was appointed to the Council of State in 1979, in which he sat until 1994.[1] He served as the Council's Vice-President (1988–91), before becoming President (1991–94): becoming the most prominent politician to hold the position since Léon Kauffman in 1952.

He was the son of former Prime Minister Pierre Dupong.[1]
