Lisa died Saturday at her home in New Jersey.  TMZ reports law enforcement responded to a 911 call to her house but she was not responsive when paramedics arrived.

Other than the role of Caitlin, the only other acting Lisa did was in the movie Bartender.  She later became a restaurant manager and event planner.

Director Kevin Smith broke the news of her death on his  Facebook page last night.
