Dallas Weekly Publisher Emeritus, James A. Washington, Passes at 73

It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of James A. Washington, Publisher emeritus of the Dallas Weekly. James was one-of-a-kind. His wit, incredible storytelling and extensive business acumen made him one of the best – from public relations, corporate communications, and advertising, to ethnic marketing, broadcast and print news, and publishing.

A highly esteemed communications professional, James was honored with the Legacy Award in 2019 National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) for his significant industry contributions.  He was actively engaged on various boards and committees in Dallas, Texas, and beyond, receiving multiple accolades with national recognition for his exceptional community service spanning over 40 years.

His loss has left a void that cannot be filled. But we at Dallas Weekly will honor his legacy by continuing his work of journalistic excellence and community advocacy. As many may know, DW is a family business currently owned and operated by his son and DW publisher, Patrick Washington and daughter-in-law and DW CEO, Jess Washington. 

While there will come a time to celebrate, we ask that you please respect the family’s privacy during this difficult time. We at Dallas Weekly will celebrate James Washington’s remarkable life and legacy and will be sure that all who loved and supported him are made aware of  plans.
