'Tips for Jesus' mystery man ID'd as former PayPal exec

SAN JOSE, Calif., Dec. 6 (UPI) --
The man who has been leaving "Tips for Jesus" in the thousands for restaurant servers across the United States has been revealed as a former PayPal executive.



Tech gossip blog Valleywag said it has confirmed Jack Selby -- a former PayPal vice president and part of a group dubbed the "PayPal Mafia" when they left the company with massive payouts -- is behind the tips, made in college towns on football game days, and the @tipsforjesus Instagram account that chronicled the generous payments.



Selby's massive tips include a $10,000 gratuity on a $3,000 booze tab he and his friends racked up and a $1,000 tip left for a server who brought him tacos.



Valleywag said friends revealed Selby, who has not publicly acknowledged his deeds, dubbed his project "Tips for Jesus" as a joke, and the tips really have no religious purpose.
