Voss grew up in the suburbs of St. Paul, Minn. and played Division III college hockey at the University of St. Thomas. As a goaltender, equipment was expensive. When he was 12-years-old, his dad suggested he referee to earn money to help pay for his equipment, which ended up being an activity the father and son did together. After his playing days were over, Voss began focusing on his refereeing where he started officiating Tier 3 hockey and Minnesota Junior Hockey, The following summer he moved to New England to learn how to referee in the 3 man system while continuing to work Tier 3 hockey. He then joined the NAHL and the USHL for two years where he met 30-year-veteran NHL linesman, Dan Schachte, who convinced him to move and work college hockey. The 29-year-old then worked Division 1 college hockey which opened the door to officiate in the AHL. He worked college hockey and the AHL at the same time for two years before getting the call from the NHL in the summer of 2016 offering him a minor league referee contract.
