The Southern Belle Riverboat Master Captain’s Blog
Master Captain Jonathan Edward Reinert
Hi, My name is Jonathan Edward Reinert and I am writing this blog every week or so to give tourists and locals alike an inside view of what the day to day operations of The Chattanooga Riverboat Company looks like and some perspective into a bit of my experiences that I’ve had over my short period of time on this beautiful planet!
A little bit about me.
I grew up in Ringgold, GA to Joe and Joy Reinert in small home in a awesome neighborhood. I have a younger sister that is 3 years my junior. My best friend Phillip Sloan was born a year later right acroos the street and our friendship blossomed from that point on!
I went to school at OLPH in Chattanooga and Notre Dame High School in Chattanooga. I staarted working at the Southern Belle Riverboat when I was 16 and have worked here ever since! It’s been the best job i have ever had an even kept the job every summer during college when I attended Piedmont College and played college soccer and college tennis!
The Company paid for my college and education and I came back after college and became a manager after working my way up the ranks! I am currently the General Manager for the Chattanooga Riverboat Company and have been since 2013! in 2016 I married a beautiful red headed girl named Abigail and couldn; be happier in life especially when you throw our to 80 pound black labs into the mix!
I hope you enjoy following my experiences not only as a 100 ton Master Captain, but also as a traveler, husband, son, friend, and brother!
