Blake Nordstrom dies at age 58
The 58-year old co-President of Nordstrom, Blake Nordstrom, died early Wednesday morning. Blake's brothers, Pete and Erik Nordstrom, will continue as co-Presidents of the company
Blake Nordstrom, the 58-year-old co-President of Nordstrom, died earlier in the month, after the company disclosed in December that Blake had been diagnosed with lymphoma, which at the time was said to be "treatable." Mr. Nordstrom had expected to work through his illness.

"My heart goes out to the Nordstrom family and everyone at the company during this difficult time", stated Nordstrom Chairman Brad Smith, adding: "Everyone who worked with Blake knew of his passion and deep commitment to employees, customers and the communities we serve. We are fortunate to have continued leadership from co-presidents Pete and Erik Nordstrom".

Blake's brothers, Pete and Erik Nordstrom, will continue as co-Presidents of the company. Their great-grandfather, a Swedish immigrant called John Nordstrom, founded the company, which started as Wallin & Nordstrom, in 1901. Since then, the retailer has evolved into one of the US most renowned department stores.
