POWER RANGERS Legend & Original Green Ranger Jason David Frank Dead At Age 49

We have some incredibly tragic news to report today as it's been confirmed that Mighty Morphin Power Rangers legend Jason David Frank has died at his home in Texas, at the age of 49.

Jason David Frank has died at the age of 49.

TMZ confirmed the tragic news this morning and are reporting that his death was the result of suicide. 

Further details are unavailable, but his rep Justine Hunt has shared the following statement, "Please respect the privacy of his family and friends during this horrible time as we come to terms with the loss of such a wonderful human being. He loved his family, friends and fans very much. He will truly be missed."

He is survived by his four children. 

Frank played the fan-favorite Tommy Oliver, the original Green Ranger, in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers from 1993-1995 and also headlined Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie as the White Ranger. He would later become the Red Ranger for Power Rangers Zeo and Power Rangers Turbo - and Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie - before ultimately passing the torch to a new generation of young heroes.

He returned a few years later for the epic 10-year anniversary episode, "Forever Red," in 2002 before coming back for a semi-regular role as the Black Ranger in Power Rangers Dino Thunder.

After that season, he stayed involved with the franchise at conventions and made cameos on special occasions, namely in the Power Rangers Super Megaforce episode, "Legendary Battle," in 2014 and the  Power Rangers Super Ninja Steel episode, "Dimensions in Danger" in 2018. He also made a quick cameo in the 2017 Power Rangers reboot, alongside original co-star Amy Jo Johnson.

Frank announced his retirement from the Tommy Oliver role earlier this year, when he revealed that he would not return for next year's 30th-anniversary special. 

With 257 episode appearances since the show's inception, Frank is the longest-serving cast member and his Tommy Oliver is widely considered the greatest Power Ranger of them all.

Rest easy JDF...
