Jennison Heaton (April 16, 1904 – August 6, 1971) was an American bobsled and skeleton racer. He competed at the 1928 Winter Olympics and won a gold medal in the skeleton event and a silver in the five-man bobsleigh competition. In the skeleton, Heaton beat the silver medalist (his younger brother John) by one second. His other brother Trowbridge was also a bobsleigh enthusiast. Heaton later married Beulah Fiske, becoming the brother-in-law of Billy Fiske, also an Olympic bobsledder.
