James Foster ​McCoubrey (13 September 1901 – 5 July 2013) was a validated Canadian-American supercentenarian.


James McCounbrey was born in St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada on 13 September 1901. In his adult life, he moved to the USA. He was thought to have been the oldest living man after the death of 116 year old Jiroemon Kimura on 12 June 2013 and held the title until his death from pneumonia on 5 July 2013; however, the validation of Salustiano Sanchez has proved McCoubrey never was the oldest living man in the world nor in the United States. He is the oldest validated man ever born in Canada.[1]

James McCoubrey died in Walnut Creek, California, USA, on 5 July 2013 at the age of 111 years, 295 days.
