Jamaica Foundation of Houston Logo

The Jamaica Foundation of Houston is a 501(c3) non-profit organization dedicated to strengthening the cultural ties between Caribbean people and the Houston community.


With heartfelt sympathy, we send condolences to Mrs. Marjorie Cotton for the passing of her husband Mr. James Cotton who passed away Wednesday, September 11, 2019. As a former law professor of Texas Southern University, Mr. Cotton contributed the lives of many students and was a great supporter of the Jamaica Foundation of Houston as well as the Jamaican community. Mr. Cotton will be remembered well by his community and our thoughts and prayers are with the family.
