Jason and his illness and death
Jason Gaviati was on a tour in Germany when he noticed a rapidly increasing swelling in his neck region. He sought medical advice for it and came to know that it is an enlarged lymph node. On his return to the USA, tests including a biopsy were performed on him and he was told that he has Burkitt’s lymphoma, his GoFundMe page reveals.
The prognosis was poor but he was given the courses of chemotherapy and took them as advised.
He completed the course and doctors told him that he was in remission. He left the hospital and was happy about it. He said that he was looking forward to the new chapter in his life.
But just a few days after this, Jason Gaviati went into cardiac arrest and died. His fans and friends were shocked on hearing the news and they failed to understand how despite the remission he kicked the bucket.
Lindsey and his ATL bandmates paid their tributes to this great musician. Lindsey had tweeted about his death thus:
“This is so hard to say but Gavi passed away today. I love you gavi. I love you more than you will ever know.”

One year later, she told AP:
“At first I was writing the most depressing stuff. … It just wasn’t very great music … and it didn’t have a lot of depth to it,”
“I kind of realized I have to process these emotions myself before I can write about them.”
She returned to her family in Arizona and started processing her grief. She took some comfort in quotes and scriptures of LDS General Authorities. She called him his guardian angel and played in his memory as a tribute. Jason died on 21 November 2015. There is nothing revealed about his love life, girlfriend, wife or children.
