Stephen “Twitch” Bos, a popular DJ for “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” and dancer who gained fame on “You Think You Can Dance,” has died, his wife, dancer Alison Holker Bos, confirmed in a statement to CNN.

He was 40.

“He leaves behind my husband Stephen,” said Holker Bose in a statement, which I must share with a heavy heart. “Stephen lit up every room he walked 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 is an understatement, and his positive impact lives on,” she added. “I’m sure there won’t be a day when we don’t honor his memory. We ask for privacy for myself and especially our three children during this difficult time.

No further information was released about the cause of death.

CNN has reached out to the LAPD and the LA County Coroner for comment.

“Stephen, we love you, we miss you, and I’ll always save the last dance for you,” Holker-Boss concluded her statement.

Six years ago, he spoke to the latter’s podcast with author and ex-footballer Lewis House about his story, including growing up as a single mother and how his relationship with his absent father helped him.

“I’ve always been like, don’t tell me what not to do,” Boss said. “I remember talking. [his father] In the parking lot outside of work and ‘Hey, I’m joining the dance team. I need some shows and money to get supplies’ and he went on this tangent… I was like, ‘Oh, that means I have to do this then.’

In the year In 2008, he saw his rise to fame as a runner-up on “So You Think You Can Dance” and later returned to serve as a judge on dance competitions.

The couple married in 2010. In 2010, they were star dancers on season 7 of “So You Think You Can Dance” and became romantically involved.

“We danced at the ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ wrap party that season and we’ve been together ever since,” Boss told People in February.

“There was no conversation, no conversation or first hangout. Literally, we danced and held hands together the next day,” added Holkar Bose. “And we haven’t looked back.”
