J.J. Watt is stepping up after Waukesha Christmas parade tragedy
The defensive end of the Arizona Cardinals J.J. Watts is known for reacting to terrible things. He helped raise more than $ 37 million in emergency aid for those affected by Hurricane Harvey in 2017.
He's doing it again.
A recent tragedy struck Watts nearby, and several dead and many were injured during a Christmas parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin.
A driver plowed his truck into the parade, killing six people and injuring nearly 50 people.
Watt attended high school in nearby Pewaukee, just a few miles from Waukesha.
He helps those affected by the tragedy.
Watt pays the funeral expenses for everyone who died in the parade. So far there have been five adults and one child.
Watt, of course, makes millions of dollars as a well-known NFL player. However, this is another example of someone who understands. He has the means to help and does it, especially to those who are hit hardest in the worst of scenarios.
He was named Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year in 2017. He is building his legacy and building it off the field.
