Texans stud J.J. Watt donates 10k to Wisconsin firefighter who lost his life

J.J. Watt donated 10,000 dollars to a slain firefighter’s family after hearing about the tragic situation in his home state.

J.J. Watt is a great overall guy. I mean the type of person that seems to do everything you would hope a young athlete to do. After the Hurricane he raised thousands of dollars to help the city of Houston, and now after a firefighter lost his life, Watt showed another act of kindness, for Mitch Lundgaard a firefighter by donating 10,000 dollars.

Watt, a native of Wisconsin donated 10,000 dollars to Lundgaard’s go fund me account. Lundgaard, a 14-year veteran of the Appleton Fire Department, was killed by a gunman at a downtown transit center after responding to a medical emergency.

The gunman was eventually killed after hurting a couple others, but Lundgaard put everything on the line for his force and his family.

Watt now, is trying to help by donating to a great cause.

This is what NFL players do when we do not pay attention. If Lily Zhao was not paying attention no one would have known he donated the money except the family. That is a great gesture. Thanks J.J. for being a great role model.
