FOUNDERS MONTH

 

Congratulations to our 2016 recipient

of the

Founder’s Spirit Award

 

Stephan Hosler, Golden Umbrella Executive Director

 

Established in 2006, the Founders’ Award is given each year, acknowledging exemplary contributions to the mission of Golden Umbrella. 

The recipient of the Founders’ Award is an individual who has demonstrated a high degree of passion for seniors and individuals with disabilities. 

Without seeking recognition, compensation or reward, Steve has given his time and energy where the need is greatest.  Creativity, and inspiration are the hallmarks of this individual.  Our founder would say about this individual, “this is my soul, my spirit, and my shadow.”

 

Steve Hosler was born in rural Findlay, Ohio, one of five children of Ben and Cora Ellen.  He attended high school in Rocky River outside of Cleveland, and went on to get his degree in Business, with a focus in Human Resources at Bowling Green University.

After college, he started is big international adventure as a Peace Corps volunteer in Micronesia, on the remote Pacific island of Truk.  This is where Steve fell in love with the ocean and scuba diving, helping a local resident develop a dive company that is still in operation today.  Following his time on Truk he traveled around the world for almost 2 years… until his money ran out….and then settled in Santa Monica, California. 

Steve’s first real human resources position was working for Yosemite National Park, hiring both year round and seasonal staff for the park.  He never lost his love for island living though, and in the early 2000s moved to Kauai, Hawaii.  He served as the Vice-President of Human Services for Wilcox Memorial Hospital for 20 years.  A few years later he met his wife Terri Fields Hosler at the hospital, he hired her to be the Registered Dietitian for the hospital, J and they were married two years later.  Both their children were born on Kauai, Christian who is 24 and works in San Jose in the Environmental Policy field, and Taylor who is 20 and a junior at UC Davis majoring in Marine and Coastal Science.

In 2001 Steve and Terri moved the family to Shasta County, to be closer to her family in Sonoma County.  Steve has worked for both Shasta Regional Medical Center initially, and for the last 11 years at Dignity Health Northstate.  Serving as the Vice-President of Human Resources for all three northstate hospitals, Steve feels blessed to have wonderful staff in his department, and proud to be a part of a mission driven organization.

His wife Terri shared that Steve often talks about the pride he feels about being connected to Golden Umbrella and Shasta Senior Nutrition Services.  He is in awe of the dedicated, compassionate employees that work in both organizations, providing invaluable support to our seniors, with very limited funding and resources.  His involvement with these organizations have been a highlight of his very long career.
