To learn about the origins of the Glazer family fortune, you need to know about Malcolm Glazer, Joel's late father. Born in Rochester in 1928, Malcolm bought the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 1995 for a price of a then league-record $192 million. He passed away in 2014, at the age of 85, leaving his fortune to his six children.
Currently, Malcolm Glazer's children, sons Avram, Kevin, Bryan, Joel, and Edward, and daughter Darcie S. Glazer Kassewitz, combinedly own their father's business. The Glazer Family is worth an estimated $4.7 billion, according to Forbes.
Malcolm Glazer used to keep a pretty low profile and rarely appeared in public. 'He just enjoys business more than sports,' Former Buffalo Bills owner Ralph Wilson once said about Malcolm. 'He is sort of reclusive as far as sports. I'm sure he knows what's going on, but he's interested in business.'
His children are also seldom seen in public, a practice they've continued as their father. Only Joel Glazer attends some public events but he tries to avoid cameras most of the time.
The Glazer family runs a huge real estate and global sports empire. They built a commercial real estate fortune through First Allied Corporation. Today, they are the owners of more than 6.7 million square feet of premium shopping center space across the United States.
