(WXXI News, CNN, AP) The search resumes Saturday morning at daybreak for wreckage of the small plane that was believed to be carrying Larry and Jane Glazer, pillars in the Rochester business and philanthropic community.

They are presumed dead  after their single-engine turbo-prop, a Socata TBM 700  went down just off the coast of Jamaica. 

Jane and Larry Glazer were entrepreneurs. Larry Glazer was well-known as a developer. Jane Glazer was about to be inducted into the Rochester Business Hall of Fame. They were also well-known local philanthropists. 

WXXI President and CEO Norm Silverstein interviewed the Glazers for the television program Norm & Company. This half hour program chronicles the Glazers' early lives, their careers and their commitment to the Rochester community.

I offer my deepest condolences to the Glazers’ family and friends during this difficult and trying time.”
