Randi Weinstein, the managing editor of the Phoenix Business Journal, died Monday in her sleep. She was 40.

A story on the paper’s website states, “She was born in New York state and raised in Kansas. She graduated in 1994 with a bachelor’s degree in journalism from the University of Kansas, where she was a member of the Alpha Delta Pi sorority. Locally, she was an active member of AZ Women in Media, a networking and professional development group.

“‘We’re all still in shock today,’ said Phoenix Business Journal Publisher Don Henninger. ‘Her passion and love for the paper and journalism touched us all.’

“Randi’s friends knew her as an excellent hostess who often held parties at her home. She loved to travel and recently enjoyed a family trip to Florida.

“Her co-workers will remember Randi for always saying ‘good morning’ as she walked into the office — not to mention her highly organized management style and passion for good journalism. During her 20 years in the news business, she hired dozens of interns and helped launch many a career in journalism.”
