----------Original Posting----------

A woman of faith and publicist to the stars, Patti Webster, CEO of W&W Public Relations passed away Friday, September 13. No cause of death has yet been released to the public.

“Just got the devastating news that my publicist Patti Webster passed away this morning,” tweeted gospel recording artist James Fortune, breaking the news via Twitter. “My thoughts & prayers are with the family!”

Webster, who boasted world famous clients like Janet Jackson, Halle Berry and Patti Labelle, also had an extensive gospel roster inclusive of artists like Mary Mary, Tye Tribbett, Michelle Williams and numerous others.

At the height of her entrepreneurial success, last year, the savvy businesswoman and preacher of the gospel celebrated two decades of service as CEO of a company that began modestly in 1991.

Under her leadership the PR firm that sputtered along initially—Her first client was Robin Givens who was stepping into a role in the movie Boomerang starring alongside Eddie Murphy—blossomed into a fully staffed agency overseeing music, television, film, sports, fashion, non-profit and corporate events.

Last Fall, Webster, an ordained Deaconess, church administrator and youth pastor, delivered her first sermon.

She has been profiled in Essence Magazine and received the prestigious 2009 Ebony Communications Award of Excellence for her work in PR and Entertainment.

Patti was indeed a wonderful person. I admired her faith, her love of family and friends, and her exceptional professionalism. I feel fortunate to have known and worked with her. She will be missed.

I'm so, so sorry to hear this. While I didn't know Patti personally, I know she inspired so many people and was dearly loved by those who knew her and treasured their relationship. Rest in peace.

I met Patti many years ago through the Harley family in Somerville, NJ. She was a great person, with a pleasant spirit and wonderful energy. I KNOW she knew the Lord Jesus Christ and we will meet again someday on the other side. RIP my friend.
