Thomas Jonathan Jackson is a historic bronze equestrian sculpture of Stonewall Jackson located at Charlottesville, Virginia. It was sculpted by Charles Keck (1875-1951), and was the third of four works commissioned from members of the National Sculpture Society by Paul Goodloe McIntire. The sculpture was the second of three McIntire gave to the city during the years 1919 to 1924. It was erected in 1921.[3] All four sculptures are located in Charlottesville.

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1997.[1] It is located in the Charlottesville and Albemarle County Courthouse Historic District.

On the 2017 attempt to have the statue removed, see Robert Edward Lee (sculpture)#Proposed removal.
