I used the new root tool for Verizon Samsung Galaxy S3 running 4.3 and I tried to install Custom Recovery. I went into the Rom Manager App and clicked on 'Reboot into Recovery' and now the phone won't even turn on! Please help!!!!!

You can not flash custom ROMS or recoveries on 4.3. You are required to have an unlocked bootloader to be able to do such modding. Verizon and Samsung have perma-locked our bootloaders. No way around it as of now.

If you can get into ODIN mode (vol. down + power + home) you should be able to flash the stock VRUCML1 back to your phone through ODIN 3.07 unless you've hard bricked.

Search the forums for the stock image. But first just try to get into download mode (ODIN). Without that your stuck...good luck.

As I said, I can't turn the device on at all. Thanks for the help though.

Seems like you hard bricked your phone (phone not turn on). Try this http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2581166

In theory, usb jig is for softbrick where you reset download mode and sdcard method is for hard brick where you let the phone boot up from its own bootloader which is located on the sdcard. You can try it won't hurt. Make sure you know what you doing..since usb jig required to play with circuit board stuff...

Okay thanks. I am going to try the SD card method. From everything I've heard it works great! Thanks again!
