by Rob Caprilozzi

We have extremely sad news to pass along today as Steve Dash, the actor who played Jason Voorhees in Friday the 13th Part 2 has passed away. Dash was added to the slasher franchise when Cliff Cudney called upon him to replace Warrington Gillette as the iconic slasher.

Friday the 13th Part 2 was released on April 30, 1981 and kickstarted the Jason Voorhees phenomenon. In this version of the film we were introduced to a grown-up Jason who donned a burlap sack and was out for blood.

Back on December 4th we reported that Dash had posted an update on his health via Facebook where he told fans that he had been suffering from diabetes, blood clots and a bad heart over the past year.

We here at Horror News Network would like to send our condolences to his friends and family.
