Watt makes large donation to family of fallen Sun Prairie firefighter

Former Badgers football star and current Houston Texans standout JJ Watt has quietly made a large donation to the family of Cory Barr. GoFundMe has confirmed that Watt made a $10,000 donation to the fund setup for the fallen firefighter’s family.

Barr was killed in the explosion in Sun Prairie on Tuesday night. The 34-year old died while responding to a gas leak. 

The GoFundMe account for Barr’s family had raised $64,509 in just eight hours thank, in large part, to the substantial donation from Watt.
