Donald Faison’s ex-wife, Lisa Askey, passed away on March 1, 2017, from unknown causes. The celebrity father took to Instagram shortly after getting wind of his former spouse’s death to pay tribute to the mother of three of his children.

“My son Dade is very brave,” Donald began. “Today he and his brother Kobe and sister Kaya lost their mother. Lisa Askey Faison,” he added.


Faison admitted that he and Lisa had their fair share of differences but always managed to make amends for the sake of their kids. “She and I never really saw eye to eye but one thing we did share was our love for our children,” Donald told his social media fans. “You raised three beautiful children into fine adults and I am forever grateful for that. May god bless your soul with light and love.”

Dade also took to social media to pay tribute to his mom. “I just wanted to say thank you so much mom,” he said. “You have been there for me when I needed you most. I can’t believe it has come to this but I know you are in a better place right now. I love you with all my heart and one day we shall meet again. You worked so hard and never gave up no matter how hard times got. R.I.P mom and until next time!”

Donald Faison was married to Lisa Askey for four years before finalizing their divorce in 2005. The Scrubs star married CaCee Cobb several years later and added two more children to his family tree. Donald Faison has five kids in all.
