Charlie's Childrens Education

My name is John Reitenbach and on July 22, 2017, my brother, Charlie Reitenbach, passed away unexpectedly at the age of 53.  He leaves behind two children, C.J. (19) and Madison (18) who both recently graduated from Miami Palmetto High School and are now continuing their education at Miami Dade College.  In lieu of flowers, the family decided to start this fund to assist with the children's educational expenses.  Charlie himself attended Palmetto and Miami Dade before achieving his Bachelor of Science in Marketing from Florida State University.  Charlie always stressed the importance of education to his children and was actively assisting them with enrollment and applying for financial assistance before his passing.  C.J. and Madison both want to pursue degrees in the medical field, expressing interest in radiology and nursing.  Those who knew Charlie know that he wanted his children to succeed in life with a solid education.  Any contribution will be applied to help achieve this goal.  The family extends their deepest gratitude for your help in honoring Charlie's wishes. I would like to thank Ed Zarick for helping me with starting this site for my niece and nephew.
