James W. Whittaker, also known as Jim Whittaker (born February 10, 1929) is an American mountaineer. As a member of the American Mount Everest Expedition 1963 led by Norman Dyhrenfurth, he was the first American to reach the summit of Mount Everest. He summited on May 1, 1963, with the Sherpa Nawang Gombu (a nephew of Tenzing Norgay). They ran out of oxygen but managed to reach the summit. Once there, Whittaker planted a US flag at the top. He is the twin brother of Lou Whittaker, a mountain guide who is often mistakenly credited with that achievement.

Alcanzó la cima el 1 de mayo de 1963 con otras tres personas. La escalada se realizó con oxígeno pero se les terminó antes de terminar la ascensión. Aun así consiguieron alcanzar la cima. Una vez allí, Whittaker plantó una Bandera de los Estados Unidos. Es el hermano gemelo de Lou Whittaker, un guía de montaña al que muchas veces se le atribuye el logro equivocadamente. Whittaker se estudió en "Escuela de West Seattle" y en la Universidad de Seattle.
