Jason David Frank took his own life

The ‘Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers’ actor – who had children Skye and Hunter with ex-wife Shawna and kids Jenna and Jacob with widow Tammie Frank, whom he was married to from 2003 until his passing – died last month aged 49, and Tammie has now confirmed his cause of death.

Speaking to PEOPLE magazine, she said: “My name is Tammie Frank, and my husband was Jason David Frank, who tragically lost his life to suicide just last week.

Her daughter Shayla, whom she had from a previous relationship, passed away a year ago, and “losing her and helping raise her baby son” strained their own marriage, but six weeks ago they decided to rekindle their relationship after plans to separate.

They booked two hotel rooms – due to his snoring – for a hotel getaway, and after a fun night, she went to get some “snacks from the lobby”.

When she returned 10 minutes later, she got no answer at the door, and when police arrived they opened the door and “found that Jason took his life”.
