1x1.trans Big Heart: NBA Star Derrick Rose Offers To Pay For Funeral Of 6 Month Old Jonylah Watkins!

BreakingBlackNews.com has learned that NBA superstar Derrick Rose has offered to pay for the funeral of Jonylah Watkins, the of 6-month-old baby girl who was shot and killed in a drive-by shooting on Monday.

NBC Chicago.com reports:

Rose, the Chicago Bulls, made the offer, according to Rev. Corey Brooks, who is a spokesman for the family of little Jonylah.

Rose was also said to have paid for the funeral of slain rapper Lil’ Jo Jo, who was shot and killed while riding a bike last September.

The Englewood native – who recently became a father last October when his son, Derrick Rose Jr. was born – has always felt a close connection to the plight of kids in Chicago, as evidenced by his speaking out during the recent Chicago Public School strike, and him shedding tears over the many obstacles that kids face during the launch of his new Adidas sneaker, the Rose 3.0 in September.

In case you did not know, Jonylah Watkins is the 6-month-old baby girl who died earlier this week in a Chicago hospital, after being shot five times along with her father Jonathan Watkins, 25, in an apparent gang related drive-by-shooting.
