Donald Faison posted an emotional tribute to his ex-wife Lisa Askey following news of her untimely death.
In the touching post, he praised his ex-wife for raising the couple’s three children together — twins Dade and Kaya, 18, and son Kobe, 16.
“My son Dade is very brave. Today he and his brother Kobe and sister Kaya lost their mother. Lisa Askey Faison,” he wrote. “She and I never really saw eye-to-eye, but one thing we did share was our love for our children. RIP Lisa. You raised three beautiful children into fine adults and I am forever grateful for that. May God bless your soul with light and love.”
The Scrubs star, 42, and Lisa met when she was a nursing student, and they were married from 2001 until 2005.
In his post, Donald and Lisa’s older son mourned his mother, writing, “I just wanted to say thank you so much mom! 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. RIP mom and until next time!”
Fans flooded Dade’s Instagram with their condolences and words of support.
“Sending light and love to you and your family Dade. What a precious gift — to have such a wonderful mom — who will remain in your heart forever. Blessings to you — and you will certainly see her again. Bring back those beautiful memories of time spent with your mom, when things get tough. Time will heal,” one supportive commenter wrote. Another added, “My heart goes out to you and your siblings. May her love for you keep you up during these hard times and may your love for her and the memories you have of her carry you always.”
After divorcing Lisa, Donald went on to marry CaCee Cobb, with whom he shares three-year-old son Rocco and nearly two-year-old daughter Wilder. He also has a 20-year-old son, Sean, from a previous relationship.
Our thoughts are with Lisa’s children and loved ones during this time.
