Jan Sy died at 6:35 p.m. on 18 March 2021 just a few day after getting hospitalized.
In a message to family and friends, Big Boy’s family said: “Our dearest daughter Jan Catherine Sy, is now with the Lord Jesus already. Blessed be the name of the LORD. You give and take away. My heart will choose to say, Lord, BLESSED BE YOUR NAME!”
Jan was being groomed to take over the family’s property business, SM Development Corp.
Senator Joel Villanueva called the news “devastating.”

A beautiful soul, never w/o a smile and generous beyond measure. To one of the most humble and kind person that I know and look up to. Rest in peace Jan, you sweet angel. How lucky we are that you were a part of our lives 😥 pic.twitter.com/OfDQUUf9Ws
