We are saddened to report that Jason David Frank, The Voice Of Titans Return Emissary, has passed away as confirmed by TMZ and some of Jason’s friends and contacts over social media.
Jason was well-known for playing as the Green and White Ranger in the original Power Rangers show with several other appearances in later Power Rangers series. He became part of the Transformers franchise when he gave his voice to Emissary in Machinima’s web series Titans Return. Jason David Frank was not only an actor but a mixed martial artist who brought so many good memories to all people who followed his career. TFW2005 Matty was lucky to interview him while back in 2017 about role as Emissary in Titans Return and you can still listen to it on this link.
We offer our heartfelt condolences to his family and friends.
What the f*ck?!?
We may have lost a childhood staple, maybe even a hero for some of us, but that woman lost her husband and is being forced to share details about the event to try and calm a portion of his fanbase. Really gross that anyone is doubting her, casting blame, or even making her feel like she needs to go on the defensive, especially now.
If anything bad happened, it's up to the cops and people with direct knowledge of the situation now. If there's more to the story, I hope it comes out.
I'm not going to risk insulting a grieving woman without something more solid to go on than a hunch.
I’m bothered (but not surprised) that they even had to release a statement to calm down rabid fans. People harassing her with everything else she’s dealing with right now? Sure, the internet is full of people ready to troll or harass, but damn.
Tommy would not approve.
This is absolutely brutal. To think that everything likely seemed good when she left that room, and by the time she came back it was over is insane. As if the story wasn't heartbreaking enough, it just gets more so the more we know.

Jason David Frank's Wife Reveals Power Rangers Star Died by Suicide: 'He Was Not Without His Demons'
Wow. It sounds extra tragic. I had no idea they were raising a grandbaby from the child they lost.
A lot in the article addresses various rumors.
The couple had reconciled and was getting away for a romantic weekend. She left for a few minutes to get snacks from the hotel lobby and when she came back, he was gone.
Days later and still hurts to see him pass. RIP.

May God rest his soul.

'Power Rangers' Star Jason David Frank Argued with Wife at Hotel Before Suicide
Hanging looks to be confirmed
Agreed. It’s not something one can just be cured of though. Keep on fighting the good fight
I to suffer from depression as well and have been doing so for a decade. It’s an incredibly terrible feeling and a serious issue for a lot of people. It upsets me that this happened to JDF.
Man this hurts and sucks. I grew up on the original rangers and he was one of my favorites behind the red ranger at the time. As a fellow who suffers from depression since 2015 after a family tragedy, it really makes you wonder about things. Once you have depression does it ever go away or do we all meet the same fate at some point and lose to depression. My condolences to the family as they go through this traumatic event. I remember people telling me things get easier with time but the truth is it never does.
Yeah. The opening just hit me like a ton of bricks, but I figure how bad it's gotta be for her and how much she's hurting. I wanted to close it, but I felt it'd be disrespectful to her and Jason. I offer you a comforting hug, for what it's worth.
