Ben Stevens Death, 63-year-old Former Alaska Senate President Passes Away

Ben Stevens, a former president of the Alaska Senate and the late Sen. Ted Stevens’ son, has passed away. He was 63. In a statement posted on Friday, Erec Isaacson, president of ConocoPhillips Alaska, said the business was “deeply grieved by the tragic demise of our friend and colleague, Ben Stevens,” who served as vice president of external affairs and transportation there. “Ben left a lasting legacy in the state of Alaska and was a respected leader at ConocoPhillips Alaska. Ben will be dearly missed by his family, friends, and coworkers as well as by the larger Alaskan community, Isaacson added.

According to ConocoPhillips Alaska spokesperson Rebecca Boys, Stevens passed away on Thursday night. Stevens began working for the business in early 2021 after serving as Republican Governor Mike Dunleavy. A message seeking comment was sent to the Ted Stevens Foundation. Ted Stevens, who died in 2010, was a Republican U.S. senator for Alaska for 40 years. Ben Stevens was appointed to the state Senate in 2001. He was Senate president in 2005 and 2006 but did not seek reelection after that.

His office was among at least six state legislative offices raided by federal agents in 2006 as part of a corruption probe. Stevens was never charged with a crime. He denied any wrongdoing. Former Alaska Gov. Bill Walker said on social media that he had spent time twice this week with Stevens and that the news of his unexpected death was “surreal.”

Stevens is survived by his wife, Elizabeth, and their children.
