Several people, including a California mother of two high school students and her pilot buddy, perished in an aircraft accident near San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge on Friday.

In a statement made Saturday, the Marin County Sheriff's Office said that two of the persons on board the plane had been definitively identified; however, their identities would not be disclosed until Monday morning, awaiting communication from their next of kin.

The private Catholic high school, Jesuit High School of Sacramento, has already posted a statement on its website, in which it identifies the mother of one of its students as one of those killed in the disaster.

In a joint statement from the school's president and principal, Rev. John P. McGarry and Principal Michael Wood said Jennifer Fox and her friend died in a plane crash on Friday afternoon.

"With hearts still heavy from the tragic loss of our student earlier this week, we are aware that many in our community, especially the sophomore class at Jesuit and the senior class at St. Francis, will be particularly impacted by this additional loss and in need of loving support," the statement said. "Please keep the Fox, Diepenbrock, and Vernekoff families in your prayers, and may they find comfort and solace in the Lord."

According to the Golden Gate National Park Service, an emergency beacon for a light aircraft was triggered in the Marin Headlands at 2:15 p.m. on Friday in the Marin Headlands.
