Our Crew


Jason Clemons

Everything that Clemons Boats is and all we have done is due to all of these great employees and all of the great people before them. My Grandfather Bob started Clemons Boats in 1966 and put all he had into this place, even as far as sleeping here on many occasions.

My father and uncle then poured a ton of love and effort into this business before passing it to me and it took all of these people to get us to where we are!

Thanks to everyone who has helped us along this journey including family, friends, employees, vendors, and of course CUSTOMERS!

Emily has the title of book keeper, but her position would be best described by one word, and that is glue!

Emily is the glue that holds the dealership from falling apart on a lot of levels. From every minor detail, to lots of big ones, Emily is extremely accurate and makes sure to dot the I’s and cross the T’s for everyone here.

Emily is invaluable to our team, and we wouldn’t be able to do what we do without her!

Ryan is very versatile and that is a great asset to have!

Ben Keller

Ben started with us as an apprentice tech right our of Ehove technical school. We knew from the beginning that Ben was one of those people that just “get” all things mechanical!

Ben not only has great technical skills but also has a fantastic attitude and works as hard as anyone around!

Jimmy always shows up, is very consistent, clean, and accurate. Jimmy is another invaluable employee to Clemons Boats!

Mike Matusek

Mike came to us in May of 2019, right in the heat of battle, to assist in service writing.

Glad to have Mike grow with us.


Susie Smith

Susie is another long-term employee with just under 20 years here at Clemons Boats!

Melony Shortridge

Melony is a very hard working boat cleaner, and will do whatever it takes to ensure the job gets done!

Very glad to have Mel on our team!
