At the time, Mattie wrote lovingly about the pair's meeting, period of dating, proposal, and wedding. He asked me out and I said no, but he didn't give up. Tammy Meade, an assistant DA, said her colleague "was an old-school Southern gentleman, happy all the time, a good lawyer, a good person to be around". "Three months later, I finally relented, so he drove nearly four hours just for dinner, and we've talked every day since". They shared a "surprise" first dance - a two-step swing dance - to her father's first radio single, "Blue Blooded Woman".

Jackson's post didn't offer details as to what Selecman was doing in the West Palm Beach area but said, "the Jackson and Selecman families ask for - and appreciate - prayers during this hard time". He was scheduled to perform in both North and SC this week and weekend, but those shows have been canceled due to Hurricane Florence.
