Who Is Stephen Boss’ Wife?
Minnesota’s Anoka County is home to actress, dancer, and choreographer Allison Holker. She was born in 1988 and went to Timpanogos High School while growing up in Orem, Utah. During seasons 19, 20, 21, and 23, Holker competed on So You Think You Can Dance, much like Stephen.
The professional dancer has also made appearances in a number of movies, including High School Musical (2006), High School Musical 2 (2007), and Footloose (2011). She currently hosts Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings on Disney+ and Design Star: Next Gen on HGTV.

When Did Stephen Boss And Allison Holker Marry?
At California’s Villa San-Juliette Winery in Paso Robles, the pair exchanged vows in December 2013. Together, they had two children: a daughter named Zaia was born in 2019, and a son named Maddox was born in 2016. Holker also has a daughter named Weslie from a previous relationship; she was born in 2008 and later adopted by Boss.
The couple had expressed their willingness to have more children in an interview one month prior to Boss’ passing. Holker responded, “I absolutely do,” in response to the host’s question on if they miss having a newborn at home. We’d probably be thrilled to start trying for more, in my opinion. The Boss went on to say, “I adore the tiny infants. That’s a conversation that never stops.”
Just three days prior to the dancer’s passing, the pair had celebrated their ninth wedding anniversary. Holker had posted on Instagram. ‘Tis our ninth wedding anniversary! To celebrate this wonderful magical day, I am beyond grateful. One of the best decisions I’ve ever made in my life was saying YES to @sir twitch a lot.

Reports state that a shooting occurred at the hotel later that day. When they arrived, Boss’ body was purportedly there, and it appeared that he had killed himself in the head.
On December 14, Allison released a statement announcing Boss’ passing. It began, “That is with the heaviest of hearts that I have to inform you my husband, Stephen, has left us.
Every space Stephen entered was illuminated. Above all else, he placed a high priority on his family, friends, and community. To him, everything revolved around leading with love and light.
He served as the foundation of our family, was the best husband and father, and served as an example to his followers. He left a legacy, and to suggest that his influence is still being felt positively, would be an injustice. No day will pass that we won’t remember him, I’m sure of it.
