DataTables - table not rendering. No error either

Hi All,

I have a SharePoint list and I am trying to convert my list to a datatable but nothing happens.  Here's my site and  code:
http://isogunro.com/demos/PF/_layouts/15/start.aspx#/SitePages/Home.aspx

FileName: JSOMPrioritize.html
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://isogunro.com/_layouts/15/sp.runtime.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://isogunro.com/_layouts/15/sp.js"></script>
<script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-3.1.1.min.js"></script>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="//cdn.datatables.net/1.10.12/css/jquery.dataTables.css">  
<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf8" src="//cdn.datatables.net/1.10.12/js/jquery.dataTables.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://isogunro.com/demos/PF/Webpart/Prioritize/JSOMPrioritize.js"></script>

$(function() {
	retrieveListItems();
});

function retrieveListItems() {
	var clientContext = new SP.ClientContext();
	var oList = clientContext.get_web().get_lists().getByTitle('ParkFundingForm');
	
/*
CAML (Collaborative Application Markup Language) Query is a query language used in SharePoint
to define the query for list items. You can specify which items to return based on criteria much like a SQL
query, although they look nothing alike. In this example, we simply create an empty query using the new
SP.CamlQuery() method. When you query a list, you must provide a CAML query, even if no parameters are
defined. If you pass an empty query, as in this example, you are in effect asking for all items to be returned.
In practice, this is not a great idea, since a lot of lists contain hundreds or thousands of items. After we’ve
created the query, we pass it to the oList.getItems() method to perform the query. Just as in the other
examples, we use a global variable called collListItems using the this keyword. Finally, we “load” the
query and execute it.

	$("#divListItems").html(listItemInfo);
}

function onQueryFailed(sender, args) {
	alert('Request failed. '+args.get_message() + '\n' + args.get_stackTrace());
}

$(document).ready(function() {
    $('#prioritize').DataTable();
});

Well, you have a variable called htmlTbl containing some mark-up, but you do nothing with it.
You need to add it to the page.
