Elliot Jackson Stockert May 14, 2003 - December 10, 2019 Elliott Jackson Stockert, age 16, of Belton, MO passed away on Tuesday, December 10, 2019. Jackson was born on May 14, 2003. He resided in Belton his entire life. Instantly, he was loved by his parents and family members. He was the joy of the family being the first and only male grandchild.

Jackson was all boy. He loved the outdoors and animals. He looked forward to the annual canoe trip. He spent many hours fishing, canoeing, and camping. Jackson had a great passion for baseball starting at a very early age. He went on to play on the JV team in high school playing shortstop and most recently, switching to right field.

Jackson also loved football. His junior year he played wide receiver on the JV team. He wasn’t the biggest kid to be playing football but his speed and passion for the game allowed him to have a successful season. He spent many years going to the Chiefs games with his dad. They loved tailgating together. It didn’t matter if it was freezing cold, raining, or burning hot, they were at the games and training camps. If they weren’t at the game, it was guaranteed that they would be watching the game on TV. Amber, his cousins favorite football memory was the game that they went to together and Jackson was so excited to color his hair bright red.

If you ever had to eat a meal with Jackson, you knew he was one of the pickiest eaters ever! Jackson enjoyed spending time with his Grandma and Grandpa Barker. They went to Arizona a couple times. He loved going to the Grand Canyon, zip lining, sightseeing, and collecting rocks and other treasures. He climbed Magma Mountain with cousin, Josh. They tried to speed up the trip back down by sliding part of the way and ended up with a few skin burns. He enjoyed going to a baseball game but his favorite part was going to Albuquerque to visit the snake museum.

Jackson also enjoyed spending time with his mom and siblings down at the lake and most recently, they moved back here. He loved spending time with all of them and was so loved. Jackson made everyone proud especially his dad and mom. Anytime, his dad spoke of Jack, his eyes just sparkled and danced. Jackson always had his quiet little smile. He was always kind and considerate. He was quick to step up and help anyone that needed it. He truly had a heart of gold. His absence will leave a huge void in so many peoples hearts. Life will not be the same without him. He touched so many people without even knowing it.

He leaves behind his father, Elliott Darrin Stockert, Belton MO; mother, Brandy Stockert, KC MO; siblings, Natalie Bruce, Raymore MO, Courtney Bruce, KC MO, Gracie Wendel, KC MO and James Carpenter, KC MO; and his grandparents, Phil and Janice Barker, Nevada. He is survived by many other family members that loved and adored him.

Grief is the last act of love we have to give to those we loved. Where there is deep grief, there is great love. Fly high, sweet boy! You are loved and missed beyond measure.

From the time that Jackson was born I knew we were gonna be close, Jackson was more than a cousin he was a best friend we had so much fun together whether we were at a chiefs game or when we were at grandmas house playing games or watching tv we would play on our Nintendo’s and battle eachother in games. Jackson was and is my whole heart he would brighten any room he would go into he had a smile that would make you smile even if you didn’t feel like smiling he just had a way of making things better and I wish I could have helped make things better for him. I love you Jackson and you’ll forever be in my heart.

There are just not enough words to describe such a WONDERFUL young man. I've been Jackson's neighbor for awhile now and he was absolutely the sunshine in my day EVERY time I saw him. He always had a smile and a wave!! So quick to step up anytime a neighbor needed help. I still can't help but look outside and expect to see him with his ear buds in and a GIANT smile on his face. With many, many tears and a hole in my heart I express my sympathy to Jackson's family. You did an Awesome job Darrin!! God speed Jackson...Go rest high upon that mountain!! I will miss you!

I've known Jackson since before he was born. As I'm in my 80's and on a walker, he was my arms and my legs for years. My daughter said it so beautifully when she said he was a rose in a field of dandelions. God speed Jackson.

I haven't known Jackson as long as most of you. I just bought the house next door to Darrin and Jackson in March. I would see them outside together almost every day working in the yard,practicing baseball, helping neighbors, cooking out, ect. As time went on the my girlfriend and I both,on numerous occasions commented to the other on what a great young man Jackson was. More times than I can begin to count! More time went by and we would all talk in the yard and wave when passing by. I got to see Darrin teaching him how to drive. You could tell he was nervous at times but he had a great teacher and always did a great job!! When Jackson got his license I noticed every time (no matter what) he saw me outside he waved and smiled.
That was one of the many things I really liked about him. He always waved, had a smile and was very polite. I talked about him quite often. About what a great young man. He wasn't what I was used to seeing with young people these days.
He worked hard. Strived to be a good ball player. Constantly outside with Darrin playing catch or swinging a bat.!!
I look out my window now all the time wanting to see him. Every time I look or go outside I see him in my mind smiling back at me and waiting. With tears I want to Express my deepest sympathy to Darrin and the rest of Jackson's family and friends. He will be greatly missed by all!!
WHAT A GREAT YOUNG MAN!!

We first met Jackson when he joined our baseball team. Jimmy, Zack and I all remember how Darrin and Jackson would go out after baseball practice and often hit golf balls they found between the golf course and the baseball field. Jackson was always a good kid with a kind heart and a big bright smile. He would always work hard and do his best while Darrin supported him from the stands. You never saw one without the other, Jackson and Darrin made a great team, love and happiness could be felt when around them. We cannot imagine a world without Jackson in it, but we will know in our hearts that he is looking down upon Darrin, his friends, and his family. Darrin, we are truly sorry for your loss, Jackson is loved and will be missed.

With tears in our eyes and love in our hearts,
The Schafersman's
