Joel Taylor, one of the stars of the Discovery Channel’s reality TV series Storm Chasers, has passed away at the young age of 38.
Former co-star Reed Timmer revealed the tragic news on Facebook.
“RIP my best friend and storm chasing partner, Joel Taylor. I am shocked and absolutely devastated by the loss of my incredible, caring friend. We chased so many intense storms, and I wish we could have just one more storm chase. I can tell you that Joel was at a very happy time in his life, and we’ve been brainstorming non-stop this winter about chasing plans this spring. He has the biggest heart of anyone I know, and has always been there for me through thick and thin. I’ll miss you forever, Joel. My heart goes out to the Taylor family. We lost a legend,” Reed wrote.
No cause of death has been released as of yet. Our thoughts are with Joel‘s loved ones during this difficult time.
