“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,” Holker said in a statement via People. “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.”

She added: “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.”

According to records from the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner, the Star Search alum died on Tuesday.

TMZ reported on Wednesday that Holker informed officials at the Los Angeles Police Department one day prior that Boss had left their home without his car, which was unusual behavior. Police later received a call for a shooting at a hotel in L.A., where Boss was found dead, reportedly by suicide.

Holker and Boss welcomed son Maddox and daughter Zaia in 2016 and 2019, respectively. Holker is also the mother of daughter Weslie, 14, from a previous relationship.

The couple starred on their Boss Family YouTube page, creating family-friendly dance workouts and content for over 150,000 followers.
