Jose D. Aspiras (August 18, 1924 – November 14, 1999) was a Filipino politician. He was a member of Former President Ferdinand Marcos's cabinet, and was responsible for the designation of Agoo as a first class municipality. He was interred in the local Basilica Minore in Agoo, La Union, Philippines after making large donations some called "sin offerings" for his long and checkered political career.

The Agoo-Baguio Road, situated in the Provinces of La Union Region 1 and the Cordillera, was formerly named "Jose D. Aspiras Highway" but was renamed Palispis Highway after careful reconsideration by relevant authorities.[1]
