The anonymous man leaving massive "Tips for Jesus" for waiters and waitresses across the U.S. has reportedly been identified as Jack Selby, the former vice president of PayPal.

Aruj Dhawan, a waiter at Bo's Kitchen in New York City, told the New York Post that Selby and two other customers gave him a $1,000 tip on a $111.05 bill.

"I was amazed ... I was just really thankful," he said.

The manager of Bo's Kitchen, Benjamin Cramer, said Selby told him they tip extravagantly "just because." He also revealed "we tip a hundred times the bill."

There has been previous speculation that Selby, who made millions after the sale of PayPal to eBay, was behind "Tips for Jesus."

"Bigger tips bearing the 'Tips for Jesus' mark were left across Manhattan over the weekend: $3,500 on a $391.95 bill at the Smith near Lincoln Center, and $7,000 on a $2,994.61 check at the NoMad in Midtown," Yahoo! News reports.

TheBlaze has also previously reported on the generous tipping campaign -- read the report here.
