Peter Cargill (2 March 1964 - 15 April 2005) was a Jamaican international football player. His position was midfielder or defender.

Nicknamed "Jair", he played for local sides Swallowfield FC, CC Lions, Port Morant United and Harbour View F.C. and also spent 8 years in Israel with Maccabi Netanya and Hapoel Petah Tikva. The versatile player returned to Jamaica in 1996 and was called up to the Jamaica team.

He captained the Reggae Boyz and was a participant at the 1998 FIFA World Cup in France. He collected a total of 84 caps. After retiring as a player, he became Reggae Boyz' assistant head coach until 2004. Then he coached Jamaican Premier League outfit Waterhouse F.C..

Like his World Cup team-mate Stephen Malcolm and Jamaican legend Winston Anglin, Cargill was killed in a road accident. He died of severe injuries in Saint Ann Parish while on his way to a football match against Wadadah F.C. in Montego Bay when the minivan he was travelling in overturned and struck a boulder head-on.
