James Martin Paramore (born May 6, 1928) has been a general authority of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) since 1977.

Paramore was born in Salt Lake City, Utah. Prior to his call as a general authority, he served as a bishop, stake president, and regional representative of the Twelve Apostles in Utah. In the late 1960s, Paramore was the president of the FrancoBelgian Mission of the church.

In 1977, Paramore became a member of the First Quorum of the Seventy. From 1981 to 1983, he was a counselor to Hugh W. Pinnock in the general presidency of the church's Sunday School. In 1987, Paramore became a member of the seven-man Presidency of the Seventy, and held this position until he was given general authority emeritus status in 1998.

In his professional life, Paramore was employed by U.S. Steel, the Church Educational System, and as the executive secretary to the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles. He also served as the executive director of the Utah Committee on Children and Youth. Paramore is a graduate of Brigham Young University.
