CAUSE OF DEATH: ‘Cha Cha Slide’ creator, DJ Casper, has died at the age of 58 after battle with cancer

‘Cha Cha Slide’ creator, DJ Casper, has died at the age of 58 after battle with cancer.

DJ Casper, the creator of the world-famous "Cha Cha Slide," has died at 58 years old.

The Chicago native lost his battle with cancer on Monday.

This past May, Casper sat down with ABC7's Samantha Chatman at his home to talk about his two decades of international fame and his health struggles. It was his last television interview.

American DJ, hype man, and songwriter Willie Perry Jr. better known by his stage moniker DJ Casper (also known as Mr. C The Slide Man), was born on May 31, 1971. Perry, a native of Chicago, earned the nickname “Casper” due to his habit of wearing white clothes on stage. In 1998, Perry’s nephew was working as a personal trainer at a Bally Total Fitness, and Perry made the song “Casper Slide Pt. 1,” also known as the “Cha Cha Slide,” for him to use in his workouts.

 It was his last television interview.

Casper was one of Chicago's greatest treasures. He came up with of the most popular line dances to date. Yet, he never forgot where he came from.

When he sat down with ABC7 back in May, Casper said he was having challenges with his health, but he vowed to remain positive and cherish every moment. He left behind a song that brings people together from all walks of life.
