Juan Ramirez Mejandre (March 23, 1680 – July 15, 1739), was a Spanish Baroque sculptor.

Ramirez was the head of a family of artists from Aragon. He was the father of the sculptors Manuel Ramirez de Arellano and Jose Ramirez de Arellano, and the painter Juan Ramirez de Arellano. He first trained with the sculptor Gregorio Aragon Mesa. He was the founder of a Drawing Academy (1714-1739) in the city of Zaragoza, and by the end of the War of the Spanish Succession was considered one of the best Aragonese sculptors of the eighteenth century. Most of his works are preserved in the La Seo Cathedral.
