A hero to millions
Jason David Frank is best known for the Power Rangers TV series and movies, in which he played Tommy Oliver.
The news of his death sparked thousands of tributes as people mourned the loss of the childhood hero they pretended to be in backyards.
Many have shared their stories of meeting Jason David Frank at events, describing him as a positive person.
The actor’s latest project, Legend of the White Dragon, is set to release next year after a successful Kickstarter campaign.
Tammie Frank, the wife of David Frank, recently opened up about her husband’s death.
She also confirmed that suicide was the cause of death.
Speaking to People magazine, Tammie Frank revealed that Jason David Frank took his own life over a weekend when the couple was hoping to revive their relationship.
Tammie Frank has revealed the couple originally planned to go their separate ways after a tough year.
However, before her husband died, they canceled the plans.
So instead, they worked to get back together.
According to Tammie, Jason David Frank planned a weekend getaway after his friends reminded him that they still loved each other.
Over the weekend, they attended a country dancing event.
After the dance, the couple had a warm and moving conversation in David Frank’s hotel room.
However, Tammie said she went to the lobby to bring them snacks.
When she returned ten minutes later, Jason David Frank did not answer the door.
Unable to get even a response, someone called the police.
Upon entering, they discovered that Jason had taken his life.
“My name is Tammie Frank, and my husband was Jason David Frank, who tragically lost his life to suicide just last week,” Tammie started.
“While Jason was a well-known name to some, we lived a normal life with ups and downs, just like anyone else.”
“It has shocked and saddened me beyond belief to see that the media has turned my family’s tragedy into a tall tale.”
“Since Jason’s death, I have been harassed online and can no longer stand to watch my husband’s good name slandered,” she continued.
Tammie Frank concluded the talk by saying:
“All we want is to remember Jason and our happiest memories and move on from the pain of losing a loved one.”
“I only ask for sympathy and understanding during this difficult time,” she added.
“To all the fans and supporters of Jason and our family, thank you for your kind words and wishes, and God bless you all.”
