Arizona Cardinals defensive end Jj watt is stepping up in a major way … by offering to pay the funeral expenses of all victims of the Waukesha Christmas Parade tragedy.
Watt was devastated after learning of the fatal incident … calling it “horrific” and expressing concern for those injured and killed.
The incident touches close to home for Watt, especially since he is a native of Wisconsin and formerly of Badger. He also attended high school near Pewaukee, a few miles from Waukesha.
Now the Cardinals star is putting his wallet where his huge heart is … as he offers to cover the funeral expenses of all the lives lost as a result of the heinous catastrophe.

Of course, JJ is known for giving – in 2017, Watt was named Walter Payton Man of the Year by the NFL… which recognizes the recipients for their charitable efforts.
In 2018, he also offered to cover funeral costs for those who died in the Santa Fe high school shooting … and he lifted $ 37 million in an effort to help rebuild Houston and the Gulf region after they were ravaged by Hurricane Harvey.
Watt’s efforts come at a time when a community reeling from tragedy is looking for a reason to celebrate something positive.
Here is # 99 for giving them that reason.
Our sincere thanks to
