Stephen 'tWitch' Boss Discussed Overcoming Hardships in 2017 Interview

Stephen "tWitch" Boss, the renowned DJ on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, tragically died by suicide. He was 40 years old.

Boss' wife, Allison Holker, confirmed the news in a statement, writing:

"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." Holker went on to say: "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. Stephen, we love you, we miss you, and I will always save the last dance for you."

Boss shared a message about overcoming hardships five years ago

“It’s a constant work in progress,” the former “Ellen” show DJ said in an episode of the “Aubrey Marcus Podcast” in 2017.

“You will make decisions that might seem right at the time but then they’re not. For me, it just helps to know that it keeps going — it does, no matter what — even if something seems very devastating like there’s some kind of force that’s going to keep going and it’s there for you to naturally access”.

“I’m 35 years old, I am a father of two, I’m a husband, so it’s just like I have so many lives other than my own that I have to take account for in my choices, my actions, and all of that,” he said at the time.

“Sometimes, I’m faced to make a choice that is the best possible choice I can make at that given moment. Now, will it be the perfect choice? No. Will it cause me to fall? Maybe, and if so, you’ve got to get back up really, really quick and pick up the lesson of whatever that is and then keep it moving because that’s kind of what life does”.
