Ellen’s Gorilla Conservation Campus Honors Stephen “tWitch” Boss

Stephen “tWitch” Boss‘ legacy will live on.

The Ellen DeGeneres Campus of the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund in Rwanda announced on Feb. 6 that a tree was planted on conservation grounds in honor of the late dancer, who also served as a DJ and co-executive producer on the comedian’s eponymous talk show.  As a tribute, the organization also marked the tree with a plaque reading: “In memory of Stephen ‘tWitch’ Boss and the light he brought to the world.”

“As we celebrated the one year anniversary of our Ellen Campus this past week, we took a moment to recognize a very special person who left us too soon,” an Instagram post from the fund read. “tWitch brought light to so many and was a wonderful friend to @ellendegeneres. In his honor we planted this tree so he will be forever remembered on the campus.”

Boss died by suicide on Dec. 13 at the age of 40. In the wake of his passing, DeGeneres remembered all the “love and laughter I had with tWitch.”

“He brought so much joy to my life,” she wrote in a Dec. 15 Instagram post. “I know he brought joy to yours too.”
