Mohammed Emwazi (rođen kao Muhammad Jassim Abdulkarim Olayan al-Dhafiri; arapski: محمد جاسم عبد الكريم عليان الظفيري‎; 17 august 1988 – 12. novembar 2015) bio je britanski islamistički militant rodom iz Kuvajta, poznat po tome što je za račun ISIL-a javno ubijao zarobljene zapadne taoce i zarobljenike odrubljivanjem glave. Snimke pogubljenja je Islamska Država Iraka i Levanta kasnije distribuirala na Internetu u propagandne svrhe; iako je na njima Emwazi bio maskiran, njegov primjetni britanski naglasak je odao britansko porijeklo, te mu dao nadimak Jihadi John. Njegov identitet je dugo vremena bio predmetom medijskih špekulacija, prije nego što je identificiran kao sin dobro stojeće i situirane porodice kuvajtskih imigranata u Britaniji. Nakon studija je otišao u Siriju boriti se u građanskom ratu na strani pobunjenika protiv vlade Bašara al-Asada; tamo se ispočetka priključio radikalnoj islamističkoj organizaciji Al-Nusra Front, a potom Islamskoj Državi. Početkom 2016. je Islamska Država Iraka i Levanta potvrdila njegovu smrt u američkom zračnom napadu.
