thumb|300px|right JoJo Starbuck (born Alicia Starbuck, February 14, 1951) is an American pairs skater. With partner Kenneth Shelley, she is a three-time United States pair skating champion (1970–1972). Starbuck and Shelley competed in two Olympic Games, placing 13th in 1968 and 4th in 1972, and won two bronze medals at the World Figure Skating Championships. When they made the 1968 Olympic team, they were the youngest athletes the United States had ever sent to the Olympics.

After retiring from competitive skating, Starbuck and Shelley skated in the Ice Capades and competed professionally.

Starbuck also had a minor career as an actress, performing in The Cutting Edge (1992)[1] , and the TV movie Beauty and the Beast: A Concert on Ice (1996).[2]

She continues to coach[3] and choreograph, and in 2008 was named the Artistic Director of the new Ice Capades [4].
