Jhon van Beukering (born August 29, 1983 in Velp) is a Dutch professional football forward who plays for Dutch side De Graafschap, on loan from NEC Nijmegen.

Van Beukering started playing football for Velpse Boys. After Velpse Boys he came in De Graafschap's youth academy. Vitesse saw his big talent, and enticed him to Vitesse's youth academy. In the 2000/2001 season he made his debut for Vitesse's main squad. Van Beukering scored 2 goals in the 3 games he played that season. The next season he got a place in the starting lineup for the club and scored 3 goals.

In the 2002/2003 season he almost never played (only 6 times), so he was loaned to FC Zwolle. At FC Zwolle he also played 6 games, scoring 2 goals. The next season his loan spell at FC Zwolle was extended, and Van Beukering scored 3 goals in 14 games. He returned to his former club De Graafschap in the winter break. With 9 goals in 11 games he had an important share in De Graafschap's promotion to the Eredivisie at the end of the 2003/2004 season. In the Eredivisie he played 31 games for De Graafschap, scoring 9 goals. At the end of the season he sustained a heavy knee injury, and he couldn't play for more than half a year.

De Graafschap, meanwhile relegated, could use Van Beukering again after the first half season in the Eerste Divisie. Van Beukering already began scoring goals in the first games he played after his injury. Van Beukering is currently living in Rozendaal near Arnhem. In the 2007/2008 season, he will play for NEC, where he signed a contract, which will keep him at the club until at least 2010.

He has been heavily linked with a move to Swansea City in the 2009/2010 transfer season.
