Boss started his journey on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in 2014 as a guest DJ. He became the permanent DJ of the daytime talk show and worked his way to becoming a co-executive producer in 2020. Boss was also an acclaimed dancer and entertainer.

He died at the age of 40. The Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner released the autopsy report last week confirming that he died due to a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. He was found dead on Tuesday at a hotel in the Encino area of Los Angeles.

Hotel staff at the Oak Tree Inn stated that Boss checked into the hotel on Monday morning. He reserved the room for the night and brought along a small bag. When he missed his checkout time the following morning, staff knocked on his door. When he didn’t respond, they entered the room and found his body.

TMZ reported that Boss’ wife, Allison Holker, went to the police last Tuesday, and told them that her husband had left the residence without his car, something he never did. Police stated they received a phone call a short time later of a shooting at the Oak Tree Inn. There, they found Boss’ body with the self-inflicted gunshot wound.

He is survived by his wife, Allison, and children Zaia, 3, Maddox, 6, and Weslie, 14.
