In Memory of Rande Taylor

Rande Taylor was the dedicated Vice President of Finance and Controller at Joliet Electric Motors team from 1999 to 2023. We are saddened to share the news of his passing, but also want to reflect on some memories of Rande.

Here are some memories from our employees:

“It was truly a pleasure working with Rande for the past 20+ Years. He was a great asset to the Joliet team and will
be deeply missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.”

– Tim Tibbott
Joliet Electric Motors CEO


“I am truly blessed to have Rande in my life. Even though he is no longer here in sight, he will always be here in
spirit. His leadership and guidance go above and beyond. With respect and gratitude, he humbly welcomed me to share his experiences, as an equal, always asking for and respecting my opinion, as we navigated our way through the day-to-day surprises, and tasks-at-hand. Rande’s character and unwavering confidence and support, through his actions and words, continue to direct me. Rande will always be a guiding force in my journeys, and I thank him for allowing me to be a part of his. 
Until we meet again … ‘keep the light on for me’.”

– Char Christensen

“Rande will always be remembered as an individual with a great work ethic and high level of integrity. He was a dedicated and supportive partner with his financial team and co-workers.  We were fortunate to have Rande as a business partner and friend.”
