The news about Jason David Frank is absolutely heartbreaking, man.. Before Pro Wrestling.. Power Rangers was my EVERYTHING when I was little.. and Tommy Oliver was my hero. I wore my Green/White Ranger costume that my Mom made me and pretended to be him literally every day..

Matt Cardona also took to Twitter and uploaded a photo of a very old Tommy action figure and made it clear that his death devastated him as well.

. As a kid, I thought I was too old for Power Rangers. But I still watched the show and played with my younger brother’s figures. I was fortunate to become friendly with Jason over the years…as so many have because he was so friendly and cool.

We are deeply saddened by Jason David Frank’s unfortunate demise and we offer our deepest condolences to Frank’s family and close ones after this tragic incident.
