I am behind in my mortgage. Chase Bank holds the mortgage. Today they contacted my ex husband, who has had nothing to do with the mortgage or the property that is mortgaged. He is remarried and lives in a different state. I purchased the house at least 10 years after I was divorced. Is that legal?

It is certainly out of line. You and your ex-husband must have come up in some report that listed you as married and they took it upon themselves to call him. They should stop as there are privacy issues.
With all this reorganization of the banking industry I am unsure to whom you can complain about Chase (JP Morgan Chase & Co.). I would start by telling them that if they continue to call others about your financial situation you will file a grievance against them. Contact the Federal Reserve Bank for help on finding the correct agency. But call and speak with someone about getting you current on your mortgage and what you can do. Maybe some modification program would work. Good luck.
