RJ Washington - Pastor, RE Developer passes away

RJ was more than a preacher and apostle, he was a savvy real estate man, buying out the NE corner of Atlantic and Kernan. Today, that property now holds his church and his Marble Waters Hotel. It's the only corner not owned by Sleiman.

Jacksonville pastor R.J. Washington remembered in Titus Harvest Dome Spectrum Church prayer service

Pastor R.J. Washington passed away Tuesday morning at the age of 54. Reports say he had cancer.

Many packed the Titus Harvest Dome Spectrum Church for a prayer service and it was prayer many members say they needed, especially for an occasion like this.

Although gone now, church members will remember the powerful sermons he preached Sunday after Sunday at Titus. He served as the pastor for over 30 years.

His sermons were original and personality were unforgettable.

Classmate and friend Charles Lee says they played on the same baseball team growing up. Those memories came flooding back when he heard the news.

“I remember him, starting out with his ministry, when he was 16 years old. Our time in high school, is when we played baseball together. He was a pitcher, I played second base and third. He graduated from William Raines, in 1980. We have a little age on us, but we were good friends. The experience of death, creeped on him a little too soon,” Lee said.
