Me­di­da­ta So­lu­tions co-founder Glen de Vries dies in plane crash

Glen de Vries, the co-founder of the clin­i­cal IT soft­ware gi­ant Me­di­da­ta So­lu­tions, died in a plane crash last week.

Emer­gency crews found the wreck­age of a Cess­na 172 in a wood­ed area in north­ern New Jer­sey on Thurs­day. De Vries was an in­stru­ment-rat­ed pri­vate pi­lot, though au­thor­i­ties have not yet said who was pi­lot­ing the plane. He was with his flight in­struc­tor Thomas Fis­ch­er, 54, and the plane was head­ed to Sus­sex Air­port from Es­sex Coun­ty Air­port in Cald­well. He had start­ed his pri­vate pi­lot train­ing with Fis­ch­er in Feb­ru­ary 2016. Fis­ch­er opened the flight school with his wife Jo­di in March 2012.
