José Vítor Roque Jr. (born August 31, 1976) is a Brazilian footballer who was part of the 2002 World Cup winning team, he currently plays for Palmeiras.

He has played for São José, Palmeiras, A.C. Milan, Leeds United F.C., A.C. Siena, Bayer Leverkusen and MSV Duisburg. His greatest success in club football came with playing for A.C. Milan, with whom he won the 2003 UEFA Champions League. Although successful on the international stage for Brazil, he did not make it on the Brazilian roster for the 2006 FIFA World Cup due to injury. He is devoted to helping São José Esporte Clube's youth players with a project called "Projeto Primeira Camisa" in English "Project First Jersey".cite web | title =Roque Júnior assina contrato de parceria com o São José| url=http://esportes.terra.com.br/futebol/europeu2005/interna/0,,OI798846-EI5335,00.html | accessdate =2008-09-19 | date =2005-12-15 | publisher=Terra |language=Portuguese]

His loan spell at Leeds was extremely mixed. He played 7 games for the club, during which they conceded 24 goals. He also was sent off on his home debut against Birmingham City. However, he did score two goals in a Worthington Cup game against Manchester United (Leeds lost 3-2).
