Jenna Dewan discusses late star Stephen tWitch Bosss legacy after tragedy

Stephen ‘tWitch’ Boss’s friend Jenna Dewan has emotionally spoken out on the “tragedy” of the late star’s death as she attended the National Alliance of Mental Illness’s annual gala.

Dewan has looked back on his “legacy” as she presented the Heart of a Champion award in Boss’s honour to his wife Allison Holker Boss and their daughter Weslie.

Dewan highlighted the opportunity as a way to be able to support Boss’s family and share “what he did for the world” months after his passing.

She said: “This is incredible, to have the moment to share in his love, light, and legacy. And being here to support Allison and their family I’ve known for so many years.

“They are truly the absolute best, biggest-hearted [people]. They take care of everybody else.”

Speaking to PEOPLE on the event’s red carpet, Dewan continued: “I just think being here to help support her and her family and moving forward from tragedy and also supporting his legacy and his love and light and what he did for the world.”

Dewan went on to explain on The Ellen DeGeneres Show star’s legacy “already is love, light, bringing his incredible grace.”

Boss’s death was confirmed by the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner and, while the Los Angeles office did not state a cause of death, TMZ has reported it was a suicide.

His wife Allison Holker Boss confirmed the tragic news in a statement, sharing her sadness at losing the “backbone of our family”.

The statement read: “It is with the heaviest of hearts that I have to share that my husband Stephen has left us.

“Stephen lit up every room he stepped into. 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.”

Allison continued: “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 honour his memory.

“We ask for privacy during this difficult time for myself and especially for our three children.

“Stephen, we love you, we miss you, and I will always save the last dance for you.”
