He was born and raised in Houston, Texas, where he became one of the first graduates from Willowridge High School in 1981. At one point he dreamed of a professional football career, but later served in the United States Air Force and dreamed of becoming "the second "General Washington."

His full name is Isaiah Washington IV. A DNA test to determine his heritage showed that his father's side is from Angola and his mother's side is from Sierra Leone. He married Jenisa Marie Washington on Valentine's Day, 1999. They have two children.
