John Edward Roush (September 12, 1920 – March 26, 2004) was a U.S. Representative from Indiana.

Born in Barnsdall, Oklahoma, Roush graduated from Huntington High School, Huntington, Indiana, 1938. A.B., Huntington College, Huntington, Indiana, 1942. LL.B., Indiana University School of Law, Bloomington, Indiana, 1949. He was in the United States Army from 1942 to 1946 and from 1950 to 1952. He was a lawyer in private practice and served as member of the Indiana state legislature from 1949 to 1950.

Roush was elected prosecuting attorney of Huntington County, Indiana from 1954 to 1958, and to the Board of Trustees of Huntington College, Huntington, Indiana from 1958 to 1960, and from 1981 to 1987.

Roush was elected as a Democrat to the Eighty-sixth and to the four succeeding Congresses (January 3, 1959 – January 3, 1969).

Redistricting by the Indiana legislature eliminated Roush's district and drew his home in Huntington into the Fort Wayne-based 4th Congressional District of E. Ross Adair, a Republican. Adair defeated Roush for reelection to the Ninety-first Congress in 1968.

Roush sought a rematch against Adair in 1970 and narrowly defeated him, and he served three more terms in the House (January 3, 1971 – January 3, 1977). Roush defeated State Senator Allan Bloom in 1972 and State Senator Walter P. Helmke in 1974.

He was an unsuccessful candidate for reelection to the Ninety-fifth Congress in 1976. Roush was defeated by Dan Quayle, who subsequently was elected as U.S. Senator and Vice-President of the United States.

He served as director, regional and intergovernmental operations for the United States Environmental Protection Agency from 1977 to 1979, and as Interim president, Huntington College, Huntington, Indiana, in 1989. He died on March 26, 2004, in Huntington, Indiana. He was interred in Pilgrim's Rest Cemetery, Huntington, Indiana.

The Huntington Reservoir was renamed J. Edward Roush Lake following congressional passage of a resolution authored by U.S. Representative Mark E. Souder.

Mr. Roush was instrumental in the establishment of the 911 emergency telephone system commonly used today.
