Jason Watkins was the brother of Lizelle, Remo D’Souza’s wife. Speaking to ETimes, Lizelle said, “Daddy forced the door open somehow and found Jason had taken his life. Daddy has been undergoing dialysis since some time. I don’t know what he did to himself as I am just on my way to Papa’s house. Jason and my dad stayed together.”

He was very close to her.” Lizelle also revealed that she received the news of her brother’s death while in Goa for a wedding and that the family were in “terrible shock.”
