WASHINGTON — Jay Weaver, who played bass guitar in the Christian band Big Daddy Weave, died Sunday from complications related to COVID-19. 

“I’m so sorry to bring this news, but I’m also excited to celebrate where he is right now. My brother, Jay, went to be with Jesus just a couple hours ago,” Mike Weaver described. He added that Jay died “due to complications with COVID-19, on top of everything else that he already had going on.” 

The band first revealed Saturday that Jay Weaver had been in the hospital for five days “fighting a tough battle against Covid.”

“My heart’s broke,” Mike Weaver said Sunday evening. “We just wanted to let you know that the prayers for healing can turn into prayers of thanksgiving now.”
