    Blake Nordstrom, the 58-year-old co-president of his family's retail company, died on Wednesday.

    Nordstrom (JWN) said in a statement "it is with deep sadness that we announce the unexpected passing of Blake Nordstrom."
    The company revealed last month that Blake Nordstrom had been diagnosed with lymphoma. At the time, he described his condition as "treatable" and said he planned to "continue to work throughout this process as normal."

    Jessye Norman, the majestic American soprano who brought a sumptuous, shimmering voice to a broad range of roles at the Metropolitan Opera and houses around the world, died on Monday in New York. She was 74.

    The cause was septic shock and multiple organ failure following complications of a spinal cord injury she suffered in 2015, according to a statement by her family.

    Ms. Norman, who found acclaim as well as a recitalist and on the concert stage, was one of the most decorated of American singers. She won five Grammy Awards, four for her recordings and one for lifetime achievement. She received the prestigious Kennedy Center Award in 1997 and the National Medal of Arts in 2009.
