J.J. Watt Recognized as one of Milwaukee’s “Game Changers”

Picture 2He may be staring down the opposition as a dominating defensive lineman for the Houston Texans and not the home team Green Bay Packers, but that didn’t stop Milwaukee’s “M” Magazine from including JJ and the work of his foundation in their November 2013 issue list of local game changers. “This is where I’m from and where everything really started for me,” says JJ. Excited and honored to be able to give back here in Wisconsin and to be included alongside the other 12 amazing individuals who are rocking the city!

Funds from JJWF helps sports program

After attending the JJ Watt Charity Classic this past April which raised over $300,000 to support the foundation’s mission of providing after-school opportunities for children in the community, Matagorda Elementary sixth grade teacher Moria Gesford was able to turn around and help her own school receive a grant from the foundation to fund new sports equipment.
