Jason David Frank, star of “Power Rangers,” passes away at 49

Jason David Frank, who played the Green Power Ranger Tommy Oliver on the 1990s children’s series Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, has died. He was 49.

According to reports, Justine Hunt, Frank’s manager, did not name the cause of death or say when he died, but asked for privacy “during this horrible time as we come to terms with the loss of such a wonderful human being”.

Walter Emmanuel Jones, the original Black Power Ranger who co-starred with Frank in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, wrote on Instagram that he couldn’t believe it.

“My heart is sad to have lost another member of our special family,” wrote Jones.

Frank is survived by four children; one from his marriage with Tammie Frank and three from his first marriage to Shawna Frank.
