The 20th Amendment provides that if the President-elect dies before inauguration "the Vice President-elect shall become President".

If it were the Vice-President elect who died, then if the Electors had not yet voted, his party could nominate another candidate. If however they had already voted for him, the President-elect would be sworn in without a Vice-President, and would then have to appoint one under the provisions of the 25th Amendment.
