Jackson Vroman (born June 6, 1981 in Laguna, California) is an Lebanese American professional basketball player with Mahram Tehran of Iran. He was naturalized as a Lebanese citizen to play in the Lebanon national basketball team substituting the other naturalized American Lebanese player Joe Vogel.

He is the son of former NBA player Brett Vroman, who played briefly for the Utah Jazz in the 1980-81 NBA season. Recently, Vroman has accepted Lebanese citizenship and will fill in the void left by Joe Vogel in the 2009 FIBA Asia Championship tournament in China.

He played for the Phoenix Suns and the New Orleans Hornets/New Orleans/Oklahoma City Hornets, averaging 4.6 points and 3.8 rebounds per game.

During the 2004-05 NBA season he was part of a trade that saw him and teammates Casey Jacobsen and Maciej Lampe being sent to the Hornets for guard Jim Jackson.

In the 2006/07 season he played for CB Gran Canaria in the Spanish ACB.[2] He began the 2007/08 season with CB Girona[3] before being signed by BC Lietuvos Rytas in February 2008.[4]
