Jonathan Simon Djanogly (born June 3, 1965) is a British politician and solicitor, Conservative Member of Parliament for Huntingdon.

Jonathan Djanogly was born in London and comes from a family of enormously wealthy textile manufacturers; he was educated at the independent University College School, Hampstead, before attending the Oxford Polytechnic where he was awarded a Bachelor of Arts in law and politics in 1987. He took his law finals at The College of Law, Guildford in 1988. Whilst in Oxford, in 1986, he was elected as the chairman of the polytechnic's Conservative Association. He joined S. J. Berwin & Co, London in 1988 as a trainee solicitor, and was admitted as a solicitor in 1990, and has been a corporate finance partner since 1998. He was elected as a councillor in the City of Westminster in 1994 and served until his election to parliament.

He unsuccessfully contested the parliamentary seat of Oxford East at the 1997 General Election where he was defeated by the sitting Labour MP Andrew Smith by 16,665 votes. He was elected at the 2001 General Election for the very safe seat of Huntingdon, following the retirement of the sitting MP and former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom John Major. Jonathan Djanogly held the seat comfortably with a majority of 12,792 and has remained an MP since. He made his maiden speech on July 2, 2001.

He served on the Trade and Industry Select Committee from 2001, and was promoted to the frontbench by Michael Howard as an opposition spokesman on Home Affairs in 2004, and has been the "Shadow" Solicitor General since May 2004.

He has been married to Rebecca Jane Silk since 1991 and they live in his Cambridgeshire constituency with their son and daughter. He has worked in Europe, South Africa and the United States of America. His father is Sir Harry Djanogly, a multi-millionaire philanthropist who endowed the Sir Harry and Lady Djanogly Learning Resource Centre at the University of Nottingham.
