The appointment of a named executor or replacement of an executor for any reason is under the jurisdiction of the probate court. The named executor can file a Declination if they don't want to accept the appointment and the court will appoint an alternate. The person who wishes to relinquish the office after appointment as the executor must file a motion with the court to be relieved of that duty and the court will appoint a successor. If the executor dies or becomes incapacitated the court will appoint a successor. If there has been misconduct or breach of duty by the executor the beneficiaries may petition for removal and appointment of a successor.

( You can find out who the executor is by viewing the will at your local Probate Court.)
