Larry is a visionary leader of the business community with unmatched passion for building a better Rochester for all our residents. And both of them are extraordinarily generous with their time and resources, supporting a range of activities in the community. This is such a tremendous loss for me, for Nazareth College, for all of Rochester. My thoughts and prayers go out to their family.”

State Assembly Majority Leader Joe Morelle:
“I am deeply saddened to learn of the tragic passing of a longtime personal friends, Larry and Jane Glazer. The Glazer’s believed in the full potential of Rochester and their passion for our community was always on display – whether through their unrivaled commitment to the rebirth of downtown or through their many philanthropic and charitable activities. Larry and Jane exemplified a model of community stewardship. Their presence will forever be felt throughout Rochester, a community they loved, fought tirelessly for, and called home. Larry and Jane will always hold a special place in all of our hearts. I extend my deepest sympathies to the Glazer family during this difficult time.”

It deeply saddens me that Rochester has now lost two of its most indomitable, industrious visionaries, Larry and Jane Glazer. Together, both Larry and Jane were among the biggest believers and champions in Rochester’s future and because of them, their hometown is a better place. It is a massive and heartbreaking loss for this community, and my thoughts and prayers are with their family and all who knew and loved the Glazers.”
Lieutenant Governor Robert J. Duffy
"I have known Larry and Jane Glazer for many years and have immense respect for them both. The Glazers possessed two of the brightest minds in business. Their business acumen was only matched by their integrity, philanthropy and community spirit. Larry did more for developing downtown Rochester than anyone I know, and Jane was set to be inducted into the business hall of fame. They cannot be replaced. My thoughts and prayers are with the Glazer family as they navigate this difficult time."
