“I called you to say son look at you in this ad! Then I remembered 💔,” Connie Boss Alexander captioned a snippet of the ad on her Instagram Stories on Tuesday.
“My heart…” Alexander, 59, added.
On Monday, Gap released a campaign posthumously honoring Boss, who before his death on Dec. 13 featured in the company’s collaboration with Haitian-owned menswear label The Brooklyn Circus.
In the clip, the former “Ellen DeGeneres Show” DJ happily shows off her dance moves while rocking pieces from the new capsule.
Gap also announced that it will make a donation to Active Emotional Health in Boss’s honor.
Alison Holkar, Bass’s wife, released a statement, saying how she was “so moved” by her husband’s moving images.
“When Stephen and I first saw her photos from the campaign, it brought tears to our eyes. He was so impressed with how they captured her true essence, and he wanted to show them off for the world to see. was excited for,” he said.
“We pay tribute to Stephen’s life by presenting these photos for the joy and light he brought to everyone around him.”
Bass died by suicide last month, just three days after he and 34-year-old Holkar celebrated their ninth wedding anniversary. He was 40 years old.
Following his untimely death, Alexander said she was unable to express how she felt, but wanted to thank everyone for their kind messages.
“Family and friends, thank you for all the love, prayers and encouragement,” she wrote on her Instagram Stories last month.
“Please know that I see all the messages, texts, posts and phone calls. I can’t use words right now. Please know that I will reach out when I can.
He ended his message by asking his followers to keep him and his family “in prayer”.
Bass is survived by his wife, three children: Wesley, 14, Maddox, 6, and Zia, 3, as well as several other family members.
