Lord John Pakenham Joicey-Cecil (3 March 1867 – 25 June 1942) was a British Conservative politician.

Joicey-Cecil was the fourth son of William Cecil, 3rd Marquess of Exeter, and his wife Lady Georgina Sophia, daughter of Thomas Pakenham, 2nd Earl of Longford. Brownlow Cecil, 4th Marquess of Exeter and Lord William Cecil were his elder brothers.

Joicey-Cecil was elected to the House of Commons for Stamford in 1906, a seat he held until January 1910 general election. In April 1910, he was appointed a deputy lieutenant of Lincolnshire.[3]

Joicey-Cecil married Isabella Maud Joicey in 1896 and assumed the additional surname of Joicey. He died in June 1942, aged 75.
