Frank joined the cast in the early ’90s as the Green Ranger, originally an antagonist to the Power Rangers before joining up with them. Over time, Frank’s Oliver became the leader of the Power Rangers through several iterations, including the 1995 feature film, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie. In total, Oliver starred in three seasons of the original Power Rangers for 123 episodes.

Fellow Power Ranger Walter Jones paid tribute to Frank, telling TMZ, “He was an inspiration to so many people. His presence will be dearly missed. It’s so sad to lose another member of our Ranger family. Jason was one of the biggest pranksters on the show. He had a wild sense of humor. We had our shares of ups and downs but I stayed consistent about being an ear if he needed one. My prayers go out to his family and all that will miss him.”
