He was the backbone of our family, the best husband and father, and an inspiration to his fans."
Stephen "tWitch" Boss rose to prominence after appearing on MTV's The Wade Robson Project and finishing as a runner-up on Star Search. Continuing his love of dancing, tWitch appeared on the dance reality TV show So You Think You Can Dance in 2008. He finished second in Season 4 and returned as a judge in 2022. In 2014, he was invited as a guest DJ on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, which was a watershed moment in his career.
