Our heartfelt condolences go out to the family.

Stephen “Twitch” Boss worked as a DJ and co-executive producer of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.” On Wednesday, Boss died, and Ellen DeGeneres paid tribute to him on her show.

Boss, a dancer who appeared in the “Step Up” and “Magic Mike” film franchises, committed suicide on Tuesday and was discovered dead in a hotel room in Encino. He had previously appeared on the reality show “So You Think You Can Dance.”

“I’m heartbroken,” DeGeneres captioned an Instagram snapshot of herself and Boss sharing a love embrace on the set of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.” “tWitch was nothing but sheer love and light. I loved him with all of my heart since he was a member of my family. I’m going to miss him a lot. Please show Allison and his three beautiful children, Weslie, Maddox, and Zaia, all of your love and support.”
