Before knowing him from Ellen, he got his start as the runner-up on the 2008 hit dance competition show “So You Think Can Dance.” After six years of being on Ellen, the talk show host promoted him to executive producer in 2020. Since his break into showbiz, he starred in “Magic Mike XXL” and became the host of “Disney’s Fairytale Wedding” on Disney+ in 2020.

Touching Rememberances for DJ tWitch

“It is with the heaviest of hearts that I have to share my husband Stephen has left us,” Boss’ wife, Allison Holker, 34, said in a statement. “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.” “To say he left a legacy would be an understatement, and his positive impact will continue to be felt,” Holker, who shared three young children with tWitch, continued in her statement. “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.”

“I’m heartbroken,” DeGeneres shares in an Instagram post. “tWitch was pure love and light. He was my family, and I loved him with all my heart. I will miss him. Please send your love and support to Allison and his beautiful children — Weslie, Maddox, and Zaia.”

“Stephen, we love you, we miss you, and I will always save the last dance for you.” Allison Hooker
