‘He’s her rock and has supported her and held her hand throughout this ordeal, rarely leaving her side.’
The source added: ‘She’s also utterly exhausted – [Lisa’s]grief is just so debilitating and draining. She’s just taking it day by day.’
The former competitive swimmer, 58, married her Elvis impersonator husband, Mark, 55, in 2018 in an intimate ceremony in Queensland.
Prior to Mark, Lisa was previously married to Grant Kenny for 23 years before calling it quits in 2009. As well as being parents to Jaimi, they also share daughter Morgan and son Jett.

Ready to roll: Last week, Lisa announced that she was planning a road trip with Mark, where she plans to do some ‘regional and rural workshops’ while Mark will be ‘entertaining’
Last week, Lisa announced on Instagram that she had a campervan ready to go on a romantic road trip with Mark, where she plans to do some of her regional and rural ‘Happy Healthy You’ workshops, while he will be ‘entertaining’.
Once they set off, she said the tour will be titled ‘On The Road Again’ – however, she doesn’t think she’s quite ready to be heading around Australia just yet.
‘Our new Happy Bus is ready to go as soon as I can get my head around being on stage again… but i feel like I’ve lost my sparkle,’ she wrote.
‘So need a bit more time to find it. I’m still crying at anytime… usually when I’m out in public when people give me beautiful tight hugs.
‘The tears just roll out… but I’m letting them. I’ve realised I can’t hold it in.’
Grief: Jaimi died on September 14 at Sunshine Coast University Hospital, after a long battle with alcoholism and an eating disorder

‘Our beautiful daughter Jaimi has lost her battle with a long-term illness and passed away peacefully in hospital yesterday morning with her loving family by her side,’ she wrote at the time.
‘Our hearts are broken and the pain is unbearable but we cherish every wonderful moment we got to share with our treasured and so loved first child.’
It was later reported that Jaimi had battled alcoholism and an eating disorder before her death at a Sunshine Coast hospital.
