Jean-Baptiste Geoffroy (born in the diocese of Clermont, 1601, and died in Paris, 30 Oct 1675) was a French composer. He entered the Jesuit order as a novice in 1621 and from 1660 until his death directed the music at the church attached to the Jesuit Professed house of Paris (known today as the Saint-Paul-Saint-Louis church), where Marc-Antoine Charpentier later served.

Besides a few vocal works in manuscript, three publications are known:

  • Musicalia varia ad usum ecclesiae (1650, lost)
  • Musica sacra ad vesperas aliasque in ecclesia preces for one, two and four voices with organ (1659)
  • Musica sacra ad varias ecclesiae preces … pars altera (1661), for four voices, including a Mass recently reedited by the Centre de Musique Baroque de Versailles
