Wolff von Stutterheim (17 February 1893 - 3 December 1940) was a German Generalmajor.

Stutterheim was born in Königsberg, Germany. He came from an old military family which produced several generals and seven knights of the order Pour le Mérite. Eleven members of his family fell in action during World War I, including his father and two of his uncles.

He was awarded the Pour le Mérite during World War I and the Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross during World War II.

von Stutterheim was severely wounded in aerial combat over France while commanding Kampfgeschwader 77 on 15 June 1940. He died from his wounds in a Berlin hospital on 3 December 1940.
