Shad Gaspard (January 13, 1981 – May 17, 2020) was an American professional wrestler and actor. He is best remembered for his time with WWE, where he teamed with his partner JTG as a member of Cryme Tyme under his real name.

Since departing WWE in 2010, Gaspard had pursued an acting career that included several roles in films and television series like Think Like a Man Too, Get Hard, The Game, and From Dusk till Dawn: The Series. He was also the co-creator of the graphic novel Assassin & Son.

On May 17, 2020, Gaspard and his son were among a group of swimmers caught in a strong rip current at Marina del Rey beach in Venice Beach, California. Gaspard's son was pulled from the water while Gaspard disappeared underwater. After searching 70 square nautical miles, the U.S Coast Guard suspended efforts to locate Gaspard. On May 20, 2020, his body was found washed up in Venice Beach, California, three days after he had gone missing and identified by the Los Angeles County coroner's office.
