Jonathan Osei-Kuffour (or Jo Kuffour), born Edmonton, London, 17 November 1981, is a British professional footballer currently playing for Brentford in Football League One in England. He is a striker.

After secondary school at St. Ignatius College, Enfield, he joined Arsenal as a trainee, winning the FA Youth Cup in 2000. He failed to break into the first team at Highbury and was allowed to join Swindon Town on loan in August 2001. His league debut came on the 25th of August as a substitute as Swindon lost 2-0 at home to Oldham Athletic. He left Arsenal at the end of the 2001-02 season and joined Torquay United, initially on non-contract terms, in October 2002. His Torquay debut came as a substitute in the 4-1 home defeat to Hull City. He quickly became a regular in Leroy Rosenior's side, scoring ten times in the 2003-04 side that won automatic promotion to the third tier of English football. He remained with Torquay, until 16 June 2006 when he joined Brentford on a free transfer, linking up again with Leroy Rosenior.
