Following the passing of James Harris, better known to wrestling fans as Kamala, on Sunday, a GoFundMe has been launched to help his family.
The GoFundMe was created by Bleacher Report writer Jason King, who spoke with Kamala's wife on Sunday after his passing was announced.
From the GoFundMe:
To millions of people across the world, Kamala the Ugandan Giant was a wrestling icon who entertained fans for three decades. The image of Kamala slapping his belly after one of his trademark chops or body-slams will forever be etched in our memory. To so many others, though, Kamala was simply James Harris, a good ol’ southerner from Mississippi who loved his wife, long truck rides, crab legs, singing ... and, most of all, laughing. James was one of the kindest, most gentle souls on this earth, and he was taken from us way too soon when he passed Aug. 9 from complications from diabetes
Because James brought so much joy to so many of us, let’s repay the favor and give something back. Along with funeral expenses, this fundraiser will help his wife, Emmer Jean, get back on her feet after a taxing 10 years, as she was forced to quit her job to care for James full time after he lost both of his legs to diabetes. Emmer Jean is a true warrior who stood by her husband’s side until the very end. Let’s honor Kamala - let’s honor JAMES - and give her some help.
