James Richard "Jasper" Cross, CMG was a British former diplomat in Canada. He was kidnapped by Front de liberation du Quebec militants during the October Crisis of October 1970.

On 5 October 1970, Cross was abducted at gunpoint from his British diplomatic residence at 1297 Redpath Crescent, in the Golden Square Mile district of Montreal, and held as a hostage for two months as the FLQ made a series of demands to the Quebec government. He was released on December 3 in exchange for safe passage for his abductors to Cuba.

Cross died on 6 January 2021 from COVID-19. He was 99.
