Jean Dauven (born 3 November 1900, date of death unknown) was a French bobsledder who competed in the 1930s. He finished ninth in the four-man event at the 1936 Winter Olympics in Garmisch-Partenkirchen.

Dauven later became a sports journalist in the French newspaper Le Figaro. Despite he worked in a conservative newspaper, he argued for the progressive policy of the Front populaire and Léo Lagrange. He also was a writer about bobsleigh, writing a book Bolides des glace (bobsleigh) in 1944.
