HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. — Joe Gibbs Racing says co-founder J.D. Gibbs, the eldest son of staff owner and Pro Football Corridor of Fame coach Joe Gibbs, has died. He was forty nine.
The workforce announced J.D. Gibbs’ dying on Saturday, saying he passed from problems following an extended battle with a degenerative neurological disease. It was revealed in 2015 that he was dealing with “circumstances associated to mind perform.” He was serving as president of JGR on the time.
Jason Dean Gibbs later served as co-chairman of JGR. Before stepping into a management position, he was an over-the-wall crewmember and an element-time driver. He made thirteen NASCAR nationwide collection starts between 1998 and 2002.
Gibbs played defensive back and quarterback at William & Mary from 1987-90 while his father coached the Washington Redskins, a workforce he led to 3 Tremendous Bowl titles.
Washington owner Dan Snyder and spouse Tanya say they’re “heartbroken for the J.D. Gibbs family” and “for anyone who had the respect and privilege to know J.D., he was instantly acknowledged as a champion in life and sports.”
Gibbs is survived by spouse Melissa and four boys.
