“The loss of my soulmate,” she wrote. “Jason, I can’t go on without you! You are my world! Yes we had our struggles like any marriage. But months ago we both agreed it was worth saving. Deep conversations, vulnerability, forgiveness on both our parts. I am deeply lost, hurt and utterly destroyed. I lost my one and only true love. I am your forever ‘Firecracker’ baby… till we’re together again.”
Jason, 49, was an actor and mixed martial artist best known for portraying Tommy Oliver in “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers”. He reprised his role from his ’90s in various “Power Rangers” spin-offs in the 2000s and 2010s. His final role will be in the 2023 movie “Legend of the White Dragon”.
