Who else knew Steffano?

Help keep everyone in the know by sharing this memorial website.

Personal note from Steffano's wife, Christina

We invite you to use this site to share your memories of Steff. Your pictures, stories, and videos bring great consolation and joy. We love seeing his smile or hearing his voice. We especially love to hear how Steff touched you or impacted you in any way, however small. All of this will be especially be a precious gift to his daughter Malaya (8).

Many of you have asked how you can help. The greatest consolation is what we know would have brought Steff joy: knowing that his passing was cause for friends and family reconnecting, for memories and laughs to be shared, and for a deepened commitment to justice and anti-racism.
