Blake Nordstrom, the co-president of his family retail company Nordstrom, has died. He was 58.
“My heart goes out to the Nordstrom family and everyone at the company during this difficult time,” Brad Smith, Chairman of the Board at Nordstrom, said in a statement. “Everyone who worked with Blake knew of his passion and deep commitment to employees, customers and the communities we serve.”
The company revealed the 58-year-old had been diagnosed with lymphoma in December but said his condition was 'treatable'.
He had planned to 'continue to work throughout this process as normal' as his family's Seattle-based company.
