John F. Seymour (born December 3, 1937 in Chicago, Illinois) is an American real estate investor and politician.

Seymour attended the public schools in Mt. Lebanon, Pennsylvania. He served in the United States Marine Corps from 1955 to 1959 and graduated from the University of California, Los Angeles in 1962. Seymour was the President of the California Association of Realtors from 1978 to 1982, and worked in the real estate business from 1962 to 1981.

Seymour, a Republican, served Anaheim, California as a member of its City Council of from 1974 to 1978, as Mayor of Anaheim from 1978 to 1982, and as a State Senator from 1982 to 1991.

In 1991, Seymour was appointed to the U.S. Senate by Governor Pete Wilson to serve in the seat Wilson had vacated to become Governor. Seymour's appointment lasted until the 1992 special election to select a replacement who would serve until the normal expiration of Wilson's term in 1995. Democrat Dianne Feinstein defeated Seymour in the special election, so Seymour's term of service was January 10, 1991 until November 10, 1992. Seymour currently lives in Indian Wells.

He is the last Republican to serve as Senator from California.
