InfoFoJoan Voss (b. August 21, 1940, New York City) is Democratic Party politician who has served in the New Jersey General Assembly since 2004, where she represents the 38th legislative district.

Voss serves in the Assembly on the Education Committee (as Vice Chair), Higher Education Committee, the Regulated Professions Committee and the Joint Committee on the Public Schools.

She served on the Fort Lee Borough Council from 1993-2004. Voss is a member of the Fort Lee Municipal Alliance Committee, which coordinates community and school activities and served on the Borough's Board of Ethics.

Voss and running mate Robert M. Gordon unseated the incumbents, Green Party candidate Matt Ahearn and Republican Rose Marie Heck, in the 2003 elections to win the Assembly seat (Heck did not run for reelection, instead choosing to run for the district's State Senate seat that year and losing to Joseph Coniglio).

Voss taught at Fort Lee High School beginning in 1963. She served as Departmental Assistant of the Social Studies and English Departments from 2000-2003. She had previously functioned briefly as the Departmental Assistant of the combined Science, Math and Guidance Departments in 1992. In 1983, she developed a humanities program to help prepare students for college in the areas of philosophy, ancient history, the classics, ethics, and European and Asian history and culture. The Humanities Course was offered for credit at several colleges and universities. She has been an adjunct professor at Seton Hall University, Saint Peter's College and Edward Williams College of Fairleigh Dickinson University.

Voss graduated with a B.A. in 1962 from Montclair State University (History and English), an M.A. in 1971 from Montclair State University (Education) and received an Ed.D. from Fordham University (Education).
