Emily Couric (June 5, 1947[1] – October 18, 2001) was a Virginia Democratic state senator[2] from Charlottesville.

Couric was born to Elinor (Hene) Couric and John Martin Couric and is the sibling of Clara Couric Batchelor, John M. Couric, Jr., and former Today co-host and present CBS Evening News anchor Katie Couric. When she died of pancreatic cancer at the age of 54 on October 18, 2001, her sister Katie Couric gave a eulogy at her funeral, pointing out that it irritated Emily when people asked her if she was Katie Couric's sister and that "I just want you to know I will always be proud to say 'I am Emily Couric's sister'."

In April 2011, the University of Virginia Medical Center will open the Emily Couric Cancer Center on the corner of Jefferson Park Avenue and Lee Street.
