TMZ quotes Walter Jones, who por’trayed the black ran’ger in “MMPR.” Many individuals found inspiration in him. We will sincerely miss having him here. The loss of yet another Ranger is heart bre’aking. Jason was one of the show’s biggest practical jokers, he continues.
His sense of humour was crazy. We both experienced ups and downs, but I consistently offered to lend him my ear if he needed it. My heartfelt prayers are with his family and everyone who will miss him.
TMZ has learned that Jason David Frank, one of the original “Power Rangers,” has passed away. The actor and mixed martial artist di’ed in Texas, as per to his manager Justine Hunt. We know from direct knowledge sources that he kil’led himself before dying.
JDF is best known for playing Tommy Oliver in the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers franchise’s original run. He first appeared in the children’s show in 1993 as one of six cr’im’e/mon’ster-fig’hting superheroes who were fully masked and skilled in kung-fu.
Fans will recall that he was initially introduced as the Green Ranger in Season 1, where he initially opposed the Power Rangers before turning around and becoming a hero. He is selected to take over as the group’s new leader as he transforms into the
White Ranger as his powers start to fade. Frank played one of the main roles for a total of 123 episodes over the course of three seasons. Frank later played Tommy once more in a number of “Power Rangers” adaptations, including “Wild Force,” “Turbo,” “Zeo,” “Dino Thunder,” “Megaforce,” “Ninja Steel,” “HyperForce,” and others.
He has alternated between being the Red, Black, and Green Rangers. JDF is a beloved Power Ranger, which is why he has frequently appeared in the series. His on-screen combat prowess carried over into the real world. Frank was a skilled MMA fighter with a background in Taekwondo, Muay Thai,
Judo, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and other combative arts. From 2008 until 2010, he engaged in professional combat. His four kids are left behind. Rep for Jason says Justine to TMZ. Please respect his family’s and friends’ privacy as they deal with the terrible loss of such a beautiful person and during this difficult time. He was incredibly close to his followers, friends, and family. He will be sorely missed. Frank was 49.
