Jonathan Beatty

Jonathan Beatty is a Hazard, KY native and founder of I Love Books, an apparel brand on a mission to end illiteracy, #bookbybook. 

Before launching the brand in March 2021, Jonathan spent more than a decade as an award-winning finance manager for global companies such as Procter & Gamble, McKesson, and Amazon. His passion for literacy began years ago when he learned most children from low-income families do not have access to a single book in their home.

He was inspired by the injustice and realized his life’s purpose is to ensure all young people have access to books and identify as readers. Jonathan created I Love Books to solve the global illiteracy crisis and inspire young people around the world.
