- ‘Scrubs’ star, Donald Faison, took to social media in a heartbreaking tribute to his ex-wife, Lisa Askey, after her passing in March of last year.


- Askey was the mother of three of Donald’s children, Dade, Kaya and Kobe.

- The exact cause of Lisa’s death was not released at the time of her passing.


Donald, a 43-year-old comedian, best known as Dr. Chris Turk in ‘Scrubs’, brought fans to tears with his heartfelt words.

Celebritist learned from People how the actor reposted a message originally shared by his son, Dade, to Instagram.

Dade captioned the photo with a heart-wrenching tribute, expressing the sadness and loss he felt at the passing of his beloved mother.


He praised his mom for never giving up and ‘working hard’.

Faison then reposted his son’s photo, adding his own caption to it.

He too praised Lisa for successfully raising their three children and expressed his gratitude to her:

‘You raised three beautiful children into fine adults and I am forever grateful for that. May god bless your soul with light and love.’

Donald and Lisa were married in 2001 and their marriage lasted four years.

She was apparently in nursing school when they met.

Faison went on to marry Cacee Cobb in 2012 after dating for six years.

They have two children together, son Rocco and daughter Wilder Frances.


It’s a terrible ordeal losing a loved one, especially your mother, who was the first to hold you and to take care of you unconditionally.

As children, we think our mothers are invincible and it’s impossible to fathom that they would simply cease to exist.

Yet, their memory never fades and is forever locked in our hearts.

Our thoughts go out to Lisa’s children.

When was the last time you told your mother how much you love and appreciate her?
