"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," Jones shared. "Jason was one of the biggest pranksters on the show. He had a wild sense of humor."

Frank's rep Justine Hunt also mourned his untimely death.

"Please respect the privacy of his family and friends during this horrible time as we come to terms with the loss of such a wonderful human being. He loved his family, friends and fans very much. He will truly be missed," said Hunt.
