Stephen ‘tWitch’ Boss Obituary, Dancer and ‘Ellen DeGeneres Show’ DJ, dies at 40

Stephen ‘tWitch’ Boss Obituary, Death – The death has occurred of Stephen “tWitch” Boss, who was a choreographer, DJ, and co-host on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.” He was 40. According to the findings of the Los Angeles medical examiner’s investigation, Boss passed away on Tuesday at a hotel. There was no indication of what caused the death. Allison Holker, who was a dancer, was the one who sent a statement regarding her husband’s passing to People magazine.

She expressed her sadness by saying, “It is with the heaviest of hearts that I have to share that my husband Stephen has left us.” “Stephen was like a beacon of light whenever he entered a room. Above all else, he placed the utmost importance on his family, his friends, and the community he lived in. Leading with love and light was everything to him. He was the rock upon which our household was built, the ideal husband and father, and a source of motivation for all of his admirers.”

Her statement went on to say that “to say he left a legacy would be an understatement,” and that his positive impact will continue to be felt in the future. “I am confident that not a single day will pass without us paying tribute to his memory in some way. During this terrible time for our family, especially for our three children, we ask that you respect our need for privacy.” Her speech came to a close with the words, “Stephen, we love you, we miss you, and I will always save the last dance for you.”

In an effort to obtain comment, USA TODAY has communicated with representatives for both Boss and Holker, as well as the Los Angeles Police Department and the office of the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner.
Boss, also known as “tWitch” on the long-running and syndicated daytime talk program hosted by Ellen DeGeneres, initially appeared on the show in 2014 as a guest DJ. In 2015, he was made a permanent member of the cast, and in 2020, he was promoted to the position of co-executive producer of the show. (“The Ellen DeGeneres Show” wrapped up its 19-year run in May.)

The native of Montgomery, Alabama, who did not begin dancing until the age of 16, participated in the fourth season of “So You Think You Can Dance” on Fox in 2008 and finished in second place overall. It was in 2010 when he was a member of the cast of “Dance” that he first drew the attention of Ellen DeGeneres. During that time, they collaborated on a routine, which DeGeneres referred to as “a crash course in getting to know one other.” In 2013, Ellen asked Boss to appear on the show as a guest DJ; the following year, he became a regular performer on the show. He got everyone in the studio up and moving with his unique dance routine, which was performed at the beginning of each and every episode of the show.
