Homecoming 2020 Achievement Award Jonathan Stotler ‘95
Born on the Highveld of The Republic of South Africa, Jonathan is the child of missionaries to South Africa and the Kingdom of Lesotho. He spent his formative years among several different people including the Venda, Zulu, and Xhosa, to name a few. Jonathan grew up speaking both English and Afrikaans and admiring, respecting, and loving the land and people of Africa.
In 1992, Jonathan joined his sisters at ENC to study pre-medicine. While on the Quincy campus, Jonathan took part in Chemistry and Biology clubs. After two years at ENC, Jonathan’s passion for aviation led him to complete his bachelor’s degree at Southern Nazarene University in Aviation, Missions, and Business, also serving as a certified flight instructor for Southern Nazarene University while working for a health system in medical education. However, Jonathan’s formative college years studying science at Eastern Nazarene would ultimately pave the way for a successful career as a medical education entrepreneur.
Jonathan pursued a master’s degree in Organizational Management, and early in his career while in Oklahoma City, he began building an understanding for organizational leadership and the new frontier in distance learning and digital education. As he took on managerial and directorial roles, he relocated to the East Coast, landing in New Jersey, all the while continuing to build a progressive career producing digital education applications, assessing learner engagement, and creating learning management systems in the field of continuing medical education (CME). Jonathan eventually found a way to combine his love for medicine, technology, and service, as the founder and CEO of Voxmedia LLC (2005), an ACCME-accredited continuing medical education company. In his words, his company’s mission is “to help healthcare professionals improve their clinical decision-making to be more in line with published benchmarks and guidelines for clinical care so that they may provide the best clinical care to patients.” In 2016, Jonathan successfully acquired Manage Assist Inc, a professional training company, further diversifying in the educational sector and leveraging learning management systems technology to expand Manage Assists’ market from four to twelve states within the first year of his leadership.
When he is not working on leading-edge technology, Jonathan is also writing Christian fictional literature. You can find his historical adventure here, a children’s book about Jabulani, a boy in Southern Africa, as he lives with purpose and loves with purpose. It is clear that Jonathan’s heart is never far from Africa. Jonathan resides in New Jersey with his wife, Rebecca (Blish) Stotler, and their two children Gloria (20) and Isaiah (17).
