After David Jebb lost the Region 3 Election in 2008, he effectively disappeared from Torrey. The Jebb's supporters liked to claim that Jebb was "gone", but the lease remained with his company and the lease continued to stipulate that Jebb maintain 50% ownership.

Gabe Jebb similarly disappeared for a while with claims that he had started a new career outside of paragliding. Again, the Jebb's supporters liked to say that he was "gone". But he has also begun to resurface as an instructor / "flight director" at Torrey Pines.

In fact, just yesterday (January 12, 2014), both David Jebb and Gabe Jebb were at Torrey together:

David Jebb was there for most of the day and Robin Marien (claimed to be the current "owner") was at Jebb's disposal:

The Jebb's control of Torrey Pines can be traced back to David Jebb's connections inside the City of San Diego through his work as a San Diego police officer (remember that former Mayor Jerry Sanders was also Chief of Police before becoming Mayor). I suspect that Jebb is showing up again because the Torrey Pines RFP (Request For Proposals) is coming up soon. Jebb will want his control to continue, and I am certain he will be flexing his connections inside our City government.

The intimidation against speaking up at Torrey is strong, and I get a fair amount of information from anonymous sources or from people who wish to remain anonymous.

Here's a message and photo I got yesterday:

Robin and Jebb were at the mafia table having lunch.

Robin drives away with David Jebb, in a Red Corvette ... The Godfather.
