NFL star JJ Watt says he will cover all funeral costs of the victims

NFL star JJ Watt has offered to pay all costs for the funerals of the six victims of Sunday’s tragic Christmas parade attack in Waukesha, Wisconsin.

The Arizona Cardinals defensive end made the announcement through local media this week, Fox News said.

Watt is a Waukesha native who graduated from Peewauken High School and the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

“JJ Watt is covering the funeral costs for everyone that lost their life in the Waukesha Christmas Parade,” journalist and author Cory Jennerjohn wrote on Twitter.

Following the tragedy, Watt tweeted:

"Just now seeing what happened at the holiday parade back home in Waukesha tonight. Horrific images."

"Truly hoping everyone is going to be OK and those not involved are now safe," Watt added on Twitter.

"Thankful to everyone who rushed to action and helped the wounded."

"That is an amazing gesture," Jennerjohn said of the offer.

"He has such a huge heart."

At the time of writing, Jennerjohn's tweet has been liked more than 40,000 times.

So far, at least six people have died, including an 8-year-old child, after a suspect rammed into crowds at the Waukesha parade.

Dozens more sustained injuries in the senseless and vicious attack.

The suspect, identified as 39-year-old Darrell Brooks, was charged on Tuesday with five counts of first-degree intentional homicide.

A sixth charge is pending after the death of 8-year-old Jackson Sparks.

Other murder victims include 52-year-old Jane Kulich, 52-year-old Tamara Durand, 71-year-old LeAnna Owen, 79-year-old Virginia Sorenson, and 81-year-old Wilhelm Hospel.

Prosecutors say that Brooks could face additional charges related to the attack in the coming days.

WISN-TV reports a variety of ways to assist the victims and the Waukesha community at large.

Those interested can donate through the Waukesha County Community Foundation and United Way in order to provide resources to impacted families, as well as through private GoFundMe pages for individual families and impacted groups such as the Waukesha South High School Band and the Waukesha Xtreme Dance Team.
