Georgia CEO Jonathan Rosen's daughter also killed in plane crash

The teen daughter of a financial executive who was killed when his plane crashed shortly after takeoff in Georgia died alongside him, her family said.

Allison “Allie” Rosen, 14, was also killed when the single-engine Cessna that her father, Jonathan Rosen, 47, was piloting went down and burst into flames Friday at DeKalb-Peachtree Airport, according to her online obituary.

“She was an 8th grader at Peachtree Middle School, a rock climber, champion weightlifter, and well-loved by her family and friends,” her obituary said.

Other passengers in the plane included another teenager and a family friend,  FOX 5 of Atlanta reported. There were no survivors.

Rosen, who was the chief executive of Entaire Global Companies, had reportedly been flying the group to Houston for a personal trip.

A cause of the crash has not yet been released.

Video from the scene showed flames consuming the aircraft as bystanders watched in horror.

“It happened pretty fast. And the fire, it turned over and smoked for a second, and engulfed in flames.”

Police have yet to issue the cause of the crash, however one witness says the plane crashed into the field, flipped over and exploded.

“It crashed, it landed, and I don’t know if it was just a hard landing but it flipped and then it caught fire,” photographer Keith Berry, who witnessed the accident, told the outlet.

Allie and her father are survived by her mother, Jill, and sister, Gabby, according to her obituary.

Funeral services for the daughter and father will be held Wednesday at Arlington Memorial Park in Sandy Springs, Ga.
