"I know that Salek [sic] is still alive somewhere. If anyone has any information, or any of my fans are willing to donate credits to the search, please contact the Salek-Come-Home [sic] HoloNet registry."
―Jimke Weet[1]

Jimke Weet was the father of Salak Weet and a renowned kloo horn soloist. When Salak went missing[1] in 26 BBY[2] during the first voyage of him and his friend, Noa Briqualon, Jimke funded a massive four-year-long rescue search for the pair, in which he spent nearly every credit he owned, in an attempt to find them. The last known responder signal from Salak and Noa's ship had been near the Monsua Nebula, an area of the galaxy known for pirate activity. The search was eventually called off[1] in 22 BBY,[2] however, following Jimke's filing for bankruptcy. Following the end of the search, Jimke expressed his hope of Salak's survival in a quote from the CoCo District Edition of the HoloNet News, published on the date 13:3:28.[1] At some point, Weet made an album of anti-war music with the musician Orin Mersai and the duo Kang and Lubrichs.[3]

Jimke Weet was created for HoloNet News Vol. 531 #49, an issue of the HoloNet News website published online[1] on March 28, 2002.[4] It was written by Pablo Hidalgo and Paul Ens.[5]
