Liza Koshy father looks really respectable on his daughter’s photos, which she posts on her Instagram and Twitter accounts. But frankly speaking, she uploads the pictures with her father and mother quite rarely. So, probably, her parents try to keep their privacy.
That’s why not much is known about Jose Koshy. He is 63 as for now. He resides in Houston, TX. Jose is of Indian ethnicity, while his wife is Caucasian. That makes Liza Koshy biracial, and that’s the thing she uses to promote herself as “a little brown girl”. Jose has been married to Liza’s mother since April 21, 1984 (according to Koshy tweet, when she congratulated her parents with 30th anniversary). Jose Koshy is definitely a rich man, but as for his occupation, there’s different data. According to some sources, he is a petroleum executive, while the other source ranks him as a President of his own Texas-based company “Koshy T and Jolly Joseph”. In addition, Jose Koshy was a director of a non-profit organization Houston Full Gospel Church of God.
