Edward John "Jackie" Wood (23 October 1919 – October 1993) was an English footballer who played as an outside-left, and later in both inside-forward positions. He played in the Football League for West Ham United and Leyton Orient.
Wood played amateur football with Leytonstone, and once for England, before signing as a professional with West Ham United in 1937. His debut came with a 0–4 mauling of Manchester United in the Second Division on 23 February 1938. He made ten appearances for the Hammers in his first two seasons, but his three appearances and two goals in 1939–40 were subsequently struck from the record after the outbreak of World War II. He served as a Territorial with the Essex Regiment during the conflict.
After the war, and the resumption of football for the 1945–46 season, Wood made a further 48 appearances, scoring 13 goals, until his departure in 1949. His first goals for the club came with a brace against Arsenal in a 6–0 FA Cup win on 5 January 1946.
