I got my answer from the History Channel

Although 55 delegates participated in the Constitutional Convention, there are only 39 signatures on the Constitution. Fourteen men, having already left Philadelphia, were not present for the signing, and only Delaware delegate John Dickinson had a proxy sign for him. Three delegates—Elbridge Gerry of Massachusetts and Edmund Randolph and George Mason of Virginia—were dissatisfied with the final document and refused to ink their signatures.

Thomas Jefferson, who signed the declaration of independence, was still in Paris working as the French minister during the constitutional convention, which is political position. John Adams was still in Europe serving as the minister to Great Britain. 

Many other people did not sign. Samuel Adams, John Hancock (he did sign the declaration of independence) and Patrick Henry turned down an invitation to attend because they thought it was going to result in another monarchy, just like the one they were running away from in England.

Only 39 out of the 55 people attending signed it.

I updated my answer to clarify that Thomas Jefferson was definitely a Founding Father and even wrote the Declaration of Independence. However, he did not become a Founding Father by signing the U.S. Constitution.

giving you a heads up, attended is supposed to be attending it'll sound really weird when you say that, whizkid.
