  • Biography*: John P. Reiss, whose position in business circles is established in the fact that he is the vice president of The C. Reiss Coal Company and secretary, treasurer and general manager of the Wisconsin Transportation Company, two of the most important business concerns in Sheboygan, has in his active connection with these business interests demonstrated his capability to handle important commercial projects and to successfully solve involved and complex business problems. He was born in Sheboygan, May 15, 1875, and is a son of Clemens Reiss. Reared in his native city he pursued a public-school education here and from early manhood has been identified with The C. Reiss Coal Company. He entered into active relations with that business twenty years ago and has advanced through intermediate positions to the vice presidency of the company, which is now capitalize for eight hundred thousand dollars. They have docks at Manitowoc, Green Bay, Escanaba, Ashland and Superior, Wisconsin, ad the home offices are at Sheboygan. They are doing a wholesale business in coal, and their volume of trade is annually represented by a large figure. Mr. Reiss has also been secretary and treasurer of the Wisconsin Transportation Company since its organization in 1904.

The intense and intelligently directed activity of John P. Reiss has constituted a feature in the success of both undertakings.2

  • Birth*: Peter Reiss was born on 17 January 1867 at Sheboygan, Sheboygan County, Wisconsin, USA.1,2
  • Occupation*: He was the Secretary of Reiss and Company Coal Company on 21 November 1883.3
  • Employment*: He became President in 1902 at The C. Reiss Coal Company.4
  • Biography*: Peter Reiss, a son of Clemens Reiss, deceased, well deserves a place in this volume as one of the representative and successful citizens of Sheboygan county, being a leading factor in business circles of Sheboygan as the president of The C. Reiss Coal Company. His birth occurred in Sheboygan ion the 17th of January, 1867, and his education was obtained at the Holy Name Catholic school here. When a youth of thirteen he put aside his text-books and entered the grocery store of Herman Herbst, receiving a dollar a week for his services. Subsequently he was employed in the German Bank for two years and on the expiration of that period began assisting his father in the conduct of the coal business which the latter was carrying on under the name of Clemens Reiss & Company. At the time of the incorporation of The C. Reiss Coal Company in 1888, he was made secretary, and in June, 1896, following his father's demise, he was elected vice president. In 1902 he was chosen president of the concern, and in this capacity has ably directed its interests to the present time. As above stated, The C. Reiss Coal Company owns docks at Sheboygan, Manitowoc, Green Bay, Superior, Escanaba and Ashland, and conducts a wholesale and retail business embracing the entire northwest. Peter Reiss has likewise acted as chief executive officer of the Wisconsin Transportation Company since its organization. The steamer "Peter Reiss" and the tug "Peter Reiss" bears his name. His business record is one of which he has every reason to be proud, as it chronicles his advancement from a humble position in the commercial world to one of prominence and success. He has traveled extensively in America and aborad and has thus gained knowledge of various regions.
    On the 21st of November, 1893, in Sheboygan, Mr. Reiss was united in marriage to Miss Mattie Pape, a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. C. H. Pape, who have resided in this city for many years and an extended sketch of whom appears elsewhere in this work. Mr. and Mrs. Peter Reiss have two daughters, Carita and Gertrude. The mother is prominent in charitable, musical and social circles of Sheboygan.
    In politics Mr. Reiss is a stanch republican, but his time and energies are entirely demanded by his business interests and he has therefore taken no active part in public affairs. Fraternally he is identified with the Knights of Columbus and the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks, while his religious father is indicated by his membership in the Holy Name Catholic church. He also belongs to the Union League Club of Chicago. He has remained a resident of Sheboygan from his birth to the present time and has won many warm friends in the city. His business record is an interesting and creditable one. It is true that he entered upon a business already established, but in enlarging and controlling this many a man of less resolute spirit would have failed. His record proves, too, that success is not a matter of genius, as held by some, but is rather the outcome of sound judgment, experience and indefatigable energy.5
  • Death*: He died on 5 September 1926 at age 59.
    In Memoriam - Peter Reiss, eldest son of Clemens Reiss, became President of the company in 1902, after having been with the company in various capacities and offices. Keen insight into present day business activities won for him places on the directorships of various large corporations. Mr. Reiss held the office of President of this company until September 5th, 1926, the date of his death.
