Deacon Washington "Wash" Wesley (21 January 1904? – 14 November 2015) was an American supercentenarian who is currently pending (As of 15 February 2015, disputed). He had originally claimed to have been born in 1903. The 1940 census lists him as 1904 while the 1930 census lists him as 1905. That could possibly also make him age 110 years old in January 2015. He had originally said he was age 106 in January 2011, implying a birth year of 1905.

As of January 2015, he still drove, does his own laundry and housework, and was a deacon at a church. He also maintains a vegetable garden. He was the youngest of 6 siblings and has outlived both of his wives. He had no children but probably an adopted daughter according to the 1940 census.

Wash Wesley died on 14 November 2015 from an undisclosed illness.[1]
