Stephen ‘tWitch’ Boss has died by suicide at the age of 40, according to TMZ.

Boss is known for his time on “So You Think You Can Dance” back in 2008. He finished the competition in second place. In 2014, he joined “Ellen,” serving as the live audience DJ through May 2022 when the show ended.

Boss was married to professional dancer Allison Holker, who also appeared on “Dancing With the Stars.” The two got married in 2013 and had celebrated their 9-year wedding anniversary on December 10, 2022.

Boss is survived by Holker and the couple’s three young children. Holker released a statement to People magazine shortly after the news broke.

“It is with the heaviest of hearts that I have to share my husband Stephen has left us. Stephen lit up every room he stepped into. He valued family, friends and community above all else and leading with love and light was everything to him. He was the backbone of our family, the best husband and father, and an inspiration to his fans,” she said.

“To say he left a legacy would be an understatement, and his positive impact will continue to be felt. I am certain there won’t be a day that goes by that we won’t honor his memory. We ask for privacy during this difficult time for myself and especially for our three children,” she continued, adding, “Stephen, we love you, we miss you, and I will always save the last dance for you.”
