In a statement to People, his wife, Allison, says, "It is with the heaviest of hearts that I have to share my husband Stephen has left us."

Boss first introduced himself to a national audience in 2008. He appeared on the Fox show "So You Think You Can Dance." His freestyle dance moves earned him a second-place finish.

He joined "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" in 2014. He appeared daily as the show's DJ until it wrapped in 2022.

"To say he left a legacy would be an understatement, and his positive impact will continue to be felt," Allison said in her statement.

He was 40 years old.
