Good evening. I am Loren, a licensed attorney, and I look forward to assisting you.
It is illegal to use your husband's likeness for commercial endorsement without his consent.
Send a cease and desist letter.
If they continue, sue for unauthorized use of likeness for commercial promotion. You may wan to retain a local attorney if you decide to sue.
If you need assistance finding local counsel try Martindale Hubble (site rules prohibit us from referring specific attorneys) . Many attorneys themselves use this site to locate attorneys outside their jurisdiction or expertise:

You can sue now, but send a cease and desist letter, as well. You are still entitled to damages for the unauthorized use.
