$("li#" + $(this).val()).remove();

should work (a unique ID per element) :
$("#" + $(this).val()).remove();

erikTsomik thanks for your answer.

I suppose you want to remove label and ul around the given LI

    <label></label>
    <ul class="options">
         <li id="1">John</li>
    </ul>

I think you shoud use a container for all :

<div class=".containerClass">
    <label></label>
    <ul class="options">
         <li id="1">John</li>
    </ul>
</div>

and now you can use :

$("#" + $(this).val()).closest(".containerClass").remove(); // or if you really prefer your syntax (not recommended) : $("li[id=" + $(this).val() + ']').closest(".containerClass").remove();
