Stephen Twitch Boss, the beloved dancer and DJ for Ellen, was found dead at age 40. Twitch died by suicide, according to the L.A. County Medical Examiner. Tonight he’s being remembered as joyous and full of light, which makes his death such a shock to so many people.

WBZ’s Mike Sullivan has more on Twitch’s life and more on resources that are available if you or someone you love is struggling.

He’s described as kind, as a light, as a dancer. Even on the red carpet, you don’t have to break a sweat that much because you can just do it like this. You may know Stephen Twitch Boss from his time on the Ellen Show, or from dance-centric movies like Step Up or Stomp the Yard 2. Never thought that a dance flow would take me this far.

The 40-year-old passed away today, dying from suicide. The loss prompted a response on Twitter from the Ellen Show, calling him pure love. People who are struggling themselves can often be triggered by news of other people’s struggles. Kathy Markey is the CEO of Samaritans, the suicide prevention organization launched in mid-July. You can get help from them by simply dialing 988. We’ll assess for risk of suicide and try to safety plan with that person.

If someone calls, what can they expect on the line? What questions might they hear and how will you guys interact with them?

Sure. Non-judgmental, compassionate listening. So we introduce ourselves, we invite people to share their name and what’s going on with them.

Markey says there is a myth that the holidays may trigger more suicide attempts. I think that lots of folks find community at this time of year. It can become more prevalent in the spring. What’s important right now is for people to reach out to someone that they think is struggling. Especially if you notice any changes in your behavior or someone else’s. All the things that I used to love to do are no longer bringing me joy or no longer feeling fulfilling. That could be a sign, saying pick up the phone and dial those three digits.

In Boston, I’m Mike Sullivan, WBZ News.

As Mike mentioned, if you or someone you know needs help, you can talk with the Suicide and Crisis Lifeline. All you have to do is call or send a text message to 988. You can also call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline or the Samaritan’s Statewide Helpline.
