Typically, a Maass lift is a map from (holomorphic) Jacobi forms of index $1$ to Siegel modular forms of degree $2$ or other kinds of modular forms. In this paper, we construct Maass lifts from weak Jacobi forms to (non-holomorphic) Siegel modular forms of degree $2$ with or without levels and characters, as formal series. By the Koecher principle, the images of our lifts are not holomorphic at cusps, even if the formal series converge. When the level is equal or less than $3$ and the character is trivial, the image of our Maass lift is in the space of meromorphic Siegel modular forms.
