James Martin Paramore (born May 6, 1928) has been a general authority of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) since 1977.

Paramore was born in Salt Lake City, Utah, and is a graduate of Brigham Young University. In his professional life, Paramore was employed by U.S. Steel, the Church Educational System, and as executive secretary to the LDS Church's Quorum of the Twelve Apostles.

Prior to his call as a general authority, he served as a bishop, stake president, and regional representative. In the late 1960s, Paramore was president of the church's Franco-Belgian Mission.

In 1977, Paramore became a member of the First Quorum of the Seventy. From 1981 to 1983, he was a counselor to Hugh W. Pinnock in the general presidency of the church's Sunday School.
