Selecman was married to Jackson’s daughter, Mattie Jackson, 28. The Tennessean reports that Selecman passed away on September 12. Davidson County DA Glenn Funk told the newspaper, “He really was a rising star and I’m sick that we lost him, but I’m grateful for every day that he worked for us because he was great.” Funk added that his office was “thankful for every day that Ben had the opportunity to serve the people of Davidson County. Our prayers are with Ben’s family. He will be truly missed.”

In his “About” section, Selecman writes “FIJI Hunting.”
