Jackson William Stanfield
February 3, 1999 — July 5, 2022
Greensboro-Jackson William Cobb Stanfield, age 23, passed away suddenly on July 5, 2022. He was born to the late John David Cobb and Amy Blackwell Stanfield, who survives.
Jackson was a cowboy at heart who enjoyed working on trucks, four wheelers and tinkering with anything that had an engine. This tall and skinny fellow, often referred to as “Slim,” was always seen wearing his jeans, a big belt buckle, cowboy boots and his favorite hat. Jackson worked as a diesel mechanic in Greensboro until 2021, when he purchased a beautiful red dump truck to start his own trucking company, Stanfield Trucking. Jackson was a loving son, grandson, and brother to his best friend Hunter. Hunter and Jackson were inseparable and even shared their own language. Jackson was loved by so many friends and family and will be missed by everyone who had the honor to meet him. He was filled with funny stories, laughter and always made everyone feel welcome. He was rarely without his infectious smile and gracious with his hugs. He never met a stranger.
Survivors include his parents; Toby Stanfield, Amy Stanfield and her fiancé Samuel Johnson, loving brother; Hunter David Stanfield, paternal grandmother; JoAnn Bateman Cobb, maternal grandfather; Jerry Doss Blackwell and several other close family members. He was preceded in death by his father, John David Cobb and paternal grandfather; Jerry Cobb.
