URGENT: My website got hacked by an Upwork freelancer and is holding it hostage for money!!!

I posted a job on Upwork to redesign and add content to my website: JohTutoring.com and foolishly included the cpanel login info in the Google Doc, and a Upwork freelancer named JayDev has hacked the website and won't release it unless I pay him $1000 USD. This is outrageous! I can't believe a reputable site like Upwork actually has people like this as freelancers. I want this freelancer to be forced to give me the new login credentials to my website and be punished by Upwwork.
