Beloved San Francisco Legend DJ Stef Dies Of Heart Attack

Stephanie Ornelas, a graphic designer, developer and writer whose work as a trailblazing musician and disc jockey was deeply respected across San Francisco Bay Area music scenes, died suddenly Sunday, according to reports.

Ornelas, also known as DJ Stef, was the founder of the Vinyl Exchange, a music community newsletter whose debut in the mid-1990s saw it document record-collector culture’s rise and fueled its expansion into print and online platforms.

A graduate of Concord’s Mt. Diablo High School and San Francisco State University, Ornelas built a striking portfolio of design work across graphic, Web and audio projects still on display at her design site.
