Sources with direct knowledge told TMZ that Frankâs death was the result of suicide, though an official cause of death has yet to be revealed.
Page Six has reached out to Frankâs rep for additional comment.
Following the tragic news, Frankâs former âMighty Morphin Power Rangersâ co-star Walter Jones also released a statement to TMZ.
âHe was an inspiration to so many people. His presence will be dearly missed. Itâs so sad to lose another member of our Ranger family,â said the actor, who played original Black Ranger Zack Taylor in the franchise.
âJason was one of the biggest pranksters on the show. He had a wild sense of humor,â he continued. âWe had our shares of ups and downs but I stayed consistent about being an ear if he needed one. My prayers go out to his family and all that will miss him.â
Jones, 51, also posted a photo himself and Frank with fellow original âPower Rangersâ co-stars Austin St. John and David Yost, who portrayed Jason Lee Scott and Billy Cranston, respectively.
âCanât believe it â¦ RIP Jason David Frankðð¾, â Jones captioned the pic. âMy heart is sad to have lost another member of our special family.
Blake Foster, who starred with Frank in the 1997 flick âTurbo: A Power Rangers Movie,â also took to social media to share a series of snaps with his late co-star and friend.
“Can’t believe this â¦ Cried all night. Heartbroken yet again. Lost my hero, our leader, my friend and an icon. Life really sucks man ðð #RIPJDF #WhiteRangerForever,” Foster, 37, captioned the post.
