TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) -Life hasn’t changed much for Jonathan Carlyle since winning the Vax-a-million drawing.

He purchased a used car, but other than that, its life as usual.

Many are surprised to learn that he is still on the job at Amazon. Carlyle says quitting was never the plan. He tells 13 ABC,

“It never crossed my mind, A million dollars isn’t what it used to be maybe, I don’t want to quit, I want to keep working I enjoy what I do.”

Carlyle has been making deliveries for Amazon since April. HIs Boss Keith Clonch says it only speaks to his character.

“i was actually astonished but I thought it was really cool, It really goes to show the character of Jonathan, he’s very grounded, family is important to him, and this job is important to him and he is the model employee.”

Jonathan has this advice for the community. He says,

“Go get vaccinated, I don’t care who you are, we all effect each other in some way, get vaccinated, and its possible you can win.” And if you do, don’t quit your day job.
