Faye Glazer, 58, died Jan. 24, 2014. Stricken with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma when she was a teenager and given six months to live, she changed the course of her life—and in many ways the natural products industry—studying diet, herbs and supplements. Her roots were anchored in 1982 in retail at the family-owned Jandi’s Nature’s Way in Oceanside, NY. She spent 12 years at Cornucopia, from 1987 to 1999 through the IPO with UNFI. She was one of the founding members of Wildfire Sales Brokerage Firm, and launched new and emerging brands throughout the industry. She educated all those around her to the true meaning of organic and natural and left her radiant imprint on many people’s lives.
