Professor Garrett, the President of Cornell University since 2015, died of colon cancer. She was previously Provost of the University of Southern California, and a professor of law there and at the University of Chicago. A truly tragic turn of events.

Alas, another life taken by cancer to report today: Professor Massey was a distinguished constitutional law scholar, who spent most of his career at UC Hastings, before moving in 2012 to take up the Daniel Webster Chair at the law school at the University of New Hampshire. I will add a link to a memorial notice when one appears.
UPDATE: An obituary.
A well-known scholar in the labor and employment law fields, he was, at the time of his death, a professor of law at Loyola University, Chicago. There is a brief memorial notice here, as well as recollections from colleagues and friends.
