In 2020 Caussé addressed the controversy surrounding the LDS Church's investments, managed by Ensign Peak Advisors, "It is a church.
It’s not a financial institution...and because it is a church, the funds that are managed within the church are contributed by the members of the church and are sacred. We consider those funds as belonging to the Lord." Caussé married Valérie Lucienne Babin on 5 August 1986 in the Bern Switzerland Temple. They are the parents of five children.

High Rise is the first studio EP by American rock band Stone Temple Pilots, released on October 8, 2013 through Play Pen, LLC. It is the first release by the band without former lead vocalist Scott Weiland, fired from the band in February 2013, it instead features Chester Bennington of Linkin Park on lead vocals, the band is credited on the EP as Stone Temple Pilots with Chester Bennington. However, this would prove to be the sole release to feature Bennington before his departure from the band in 2015 and death in 2017. On February 27, 2013, Stone Temple Pilots fired lead vocalist Scott Weiland. Weiland responded to the firing with his own statement, "I learned of my supposed'termination' from Stone Temple Pilots this morning by reading about it in the press. Not sure how I can be'terminated' from a band that I founded, fronted and co-wrote many of its biggest hits, but that's something for the lawyers to figure out." He claimed that the band had no right to perform under the Stone Temple Pilots moniker with another singer.
The firing resulted in legal action. The three remaining members sued Weiland to prevent him from calling himself a former member of STP. Weiland counter-sued the other three members for wrongfully attempting to fire him, for misleading the public by referring to their performances with Bennington as STP, to dissolve the band STP. Both lawsuits were settled out of court, allowing the Bennington-fronted band to continue using the STP name. On May 18, 2013, Stone Temple Pilots performed their debut concert with Chester Bennington of Linkin Park on lead vocals, appearing as special guests at the 21st Annual KROQ Weenie Roast, benefiting Heal the Bay, they performed their first single with Bennington, "Out of Time." The next day, the band released a free digital download of the song via their official website. The updated website featured new promotional pictures of the band including Bennington. Coincidentally, Bennington had exclaimed years before in interviews that being a member of Stone Temple Pilots was his lifelong dream.
Bennington said in May 2013 of new material that the band would not record a full-length studio album in the near future, explaining: "We don't have a label. Everything we're doing is on our own, so we're just taking it one track at a time. We would love to sit down and hammer out a record, but the reality is we're gonna make music, we're gonna make a lot of it, we're gonna be in a position to release a single at a time, go out and give people music the way they want to get it." This explained the band's decision to release an EP as opposed to a full album. On October 3, 2013, Stone Temple Pilots with Chester Bennington's complete stream of the EP could be seen and heard on Pandora Radio for Pandora Premieres, including the singles "Out of Time" and "Black Heart" that were featured on the EP officially. Stephen Thomas Erlewine of Allmusic gave High Rise a favorable review, writing that "these songs are expertly sculpted, playing upon the kind of riffs and melodies that made the group alt-rock titans in the'90s, still sounding somewhat irresistible when they're po-faced."Montreal Gazette gave High Rise a mixed review, awarding it 2.5 out of 5 stars, stating that "High Rise gives us the springy, bass-driven songs we've come to expect from STP.
But again, the results are inconsistent...basically, High Rise is the STP we remember." High Rise debuted at #21 on the Billboard 200, selling 13,520 copies in its first week."Out of Time" was used as the official theme song to WWE's Hell in a Cell. All songs composed by Chester Bennington, Dean DeLeo, Robert DeLeo and Eric Kretz.
