Texas' DE JJ Watt is reportedly paying for all the funerals of the victims in Friday's Sante Fe shooting outside Houston.
As if JJ Watt hasn't already done enough for the city of Houston and its community following the disaster of Hurricane Harvey, it appears he’s now helping pay for the funerals of the victims of Friday’s senseless shooting at Sante Fe High School ESPN reports.
Shortly after the shooting, Watt tweeted, "Absolutely horrific."
In total, ten people were killed Friday morning after a 17-year-old opened fire at the high school about 30 miles from downtown Houston. The shooter is currently in custody and has been charged with capital murder, but he may not have been alone. A second person has also been detained for his knowledge & cooperation as well.
The Texans released a statement on the shooting Friday, which read: "On behalf of the Texans organization, we are saddened by the tragic events at Sante Fe High School this morning and extend our thoughts and heartfelt condolences to the victims, their families and all those affected. We are grateful for the brave first responders, law enforcement officials and medical personnel. The Texans family will continue to pray for our neighbors.”
This isn’t the first time JJ Watt is coming to the rescue of the Houston people. Just last year, he raised over 37 million dollars in the wake of Hurricane Harvey to help those affected by the flooding and damage.
So not only is JJ a MVP on the field, but more important he’s one off the field. Much respect to Mr. Watt.
