Jason’s dream of giving back now lives through the young doctors sponsored by
his foundation. To this day, over $300,000.00 has been raised and over 2000
stethoscopes have been given out to students across the United States.
Jason’s dream of giving back now lives through the young doctors sponsored by his foundation. To this day, over
$300,000.00 has been raised and over 2000 stethoscopes have been given out to students across the United States. Over
the years, stethoscopes have been provided to full classes at A.T. Still University Medical School, Kirksville Missouri, of
which Jason’s younger brother Jeff was in the class of 2013. In addition, stethoscopes have been provided to first year
medical students at Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine, Ohio University, Wright State, Emory University and
Midwestern in both Phoenix, and Chicago. Their ultimate goal is to continue the work of this foundation nationwide, to make
Jason’s dream a reality and share this gift with HOSA–Future Health Professionals who enter medical school and become
the next generation of physicians.

The Madachy family has expanded the stethoscope
program and continue embrace Jason’s love for
philanthropy by engraving each of the stethoscopes
with the phrase, “Excel In Leaving A Mark.” Initially
people would ask Dolly Madachy why Jason’s name
was not engraved on the stethoscope. Her reply,
“This is much bigger than Jason. It just took someone
of Jason’s stature to make it happen.”
On August 9, 2007, Joe and Dolly Madachy along with
their younger son, Jeff attended Marshall Medical School’s
white coat ceremony. Ironically this would have been
Jason’s 22nd birthday. All of Jason’s class members were
presented with stethoscopes from two local physicians.
Since there are no physicians in the Madachy family, they
had not realized the impact of receiving stethoscopes
prior to seeing the students’ reaction. Traveling back to
Cleveland, they realized this would be the
direction of the foundation. Contact was made
with Marshall University; and the physicians
who shared their passion for this this program
have continued to provide stethoscopes.
