  Resolved Question: Sci Fi short story by
Following @Athena's answer below, yes, I think it was a story of the guy who's going mad actually chasing someone else through space for centuries (unless I'm conflating two stories). @Louis, I don't think it was Madness Has Its Place. (Thank you both for answering.) Hope this narrows down the title of this short story. I was slightly mistaken in the details. The Larry Niven story I had in mind was The Ethics of Madness. Thanks again for your help, guys.
