Alan Jackson shared a heartfelt message via Instagram regarding the death of his son-in-law, Ben Selecman, who passed away on Sept. 12 after a boating accident. Ben, who was an assistant DA in Nashville, married Alan’s oldest daughter, Mattie, in October 2017.
In addition to the message, Alan shared two photos with Ben.
“It’s with grateful hearts that Denise and I want to thank our friends and fans for the outpouring of love and prayers during the hospitalization and ultimate passing of our son in law, Ben Selecman. Ben was a southern boy who loved hunting and fishing and just being outdoors. His childlike enthusiasm for each new day was contagious to everyone around him. He was the godly young man that Denise had always prayed for for Mattie. Ben we love you. Rest In Peace until we see you again.”
