Does it specify in the Constitution that the president must be a living person to be elected? If so, where?

It's heavily implied in a few places in Article 2 (the president has to swear an oath, for example), but it's pretty much confirmed by the 20th Amendment.

If they are dead, than they can't swear and oath, sign bills, veto bills, appoint justices and cabinet members, and so on.
Also, if they are dead, the VP becomes President; if the VP is dead the Speaker of the House becomes President.
