Janet "Jan" Lee Shearer-Jones (born July 17, 1958 in Dunedin, Otago) is a New Zealand yachtswoman who competed for New Zealand at 3 Olympic Games and won a silver medal at the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona, Spain. Shearer teamed with Leslie Egnot in the Women's 470 Class and finished second behind the Spanish crew.
Shearer and Egnot competed again at 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta finishing 16th. There competitiveness was hampered by an injury Egnot was carrying at the time. Shearer had previously teamed with Fiona Galloway at the 1988 Summer Olympics in Seoul where they finished 6th.
