    Man, I'm in such disbelief that I'm in full denial. I'm curious as to why it hasn't broken on news outlets yet. It's not looking good but it still appears to be unconfirmed.

    Still no official confirmation on Jason David Frank. What's going on here?

    I think it's legit unfortunately. I read on one site a statement from his rep and he said he was waiting for his family to make one also.

    I was never a huge PR fan my brother who was pre teen age when they came out loved them and I know Tommy was one of his faves back in the day.

    1BB0DF31-DD58-44FA-8724-7C29DC2F874D.jpeg Another legendary character from my childhood is gone. Man this really hurts a lot, I had the pleasure of meeting him at a few conventions and he remembered me, not only that but he still took the time to chat briefly even though he had huge lines. Ugh first Kevin Conroy, now this….this month sucks

    My stomach just dropped. This is awful.

    Stories like this just goes to show, just be decent to people. You never know what the next person is going through.

    Hope JDF found his peace.

    Just goes to show guys that you never know what battles a person is fighting internally even though they put on a happy face. Whatever he was going through, he hope he found peace:

    I didn't want to believe this was real until Walter Jones posted about it, but wow. Green with Evil and Jason David Frank's casting, I feel, are what catapulted Mighty Morphin Power Rangers into the stratosphere with its popularity. At least we got to last see Tommy go all out with that Master Morpher in Ninja Steel's Dimensions in Danger.

    Between this and Kevin Conroy, not a great week for us who grew up or watched them in the 90s.

    It's been a rough week for 90's kids losing their heroes.

    The original MMPR was a staple of my childhood. RIP.

    Damn I will always remember her from Jeepers Creepers 2 because I liked her quite a bit in that. I might not have been overly familiar with her work, but I definitely enjoyed her onscreen presence.

    This day is starting out pretty rough man.

    I can't believe it. Nor was I aware of what was going on in his personal life until now.

    I will cherish these forever.

    Wow I read the headline that he passed but to find out it was by suicide. God this one hurts so bad. Like in most cases with suicide I hope they find the peace in the next life that they couldn’t find on this earth.

    There's a yearly sci fi convention in Lexington Kentucky (I live one town over) that the producer of it created to meet Power Ranger actors. Every year he has a bunch of them (along with other sci fi actors) show up. I've met JDF several times. He seemed like a real nice guy. RIP to JDF.

    Out of the MMPR actors that do the convention circuit, I never got to meet him (mostly because he was so popular he was only there on Saturdays). I did write to him back in 2000/2001 and got several items signed. It was the first PR autograph I ever got too.

    JDF's suicide just hits me hard. Conroy's passing was horrible because he had an aggressive form of cancer, but JDF succumbed to his inner demons. And he was very good at hiding it -- but like Conroy, he delighted fans and gave them what they wanted.
