Kęstutis Ivaškevičius (born 17 April 1985 in Klaipėda) is a Lithuanian footballer who plays for Bnei Yehuda in the Israeli Premier League.

Ivaškevičius is as an attacking midfielder, capable of playing wide right or centrally.

He started his career at hometown club Atlantas Klaipėda and after impressing there earned a move to FBK Kaunas. In the second part of 2006 season he was loaned out to FK Šilutė, but returned for the 2007 and scored 7 goals, earning himself a move to Hearts for the 2006 07 season.

At Hearts he struggled to make an impact on the first team. He made his Hearts debut in September 2006, in a 4 0 victory over Alloa Athletic in the Scottish League Cup, with his first league appearance occurring 6 months later, in a 2 0 win at Motherwell. He scored his first league goal against Celtic on 29 April 2007 in a surprising 3 1 win. On 15 September 2007, he scored against the other half of the Old Firm, Rangers, in a 4 2 victory a win which ended Rangers' 100% start to the season.

On 20 August 2008 a statement on the Hearts official website revealed that Ivaškevičius' loan with Hearts had been cancelled and he had returned to FBK Kaunas.

In 2009 he made only one appearance for FBK Kaunas in the Lithuanian Cup and in spring cancelled his contract after the club was relegated to third division. As of July 2009 he was on trial at Kryvbas.
