Two San Diegans made the list of the 400 richest Americans published by Forbes Magazine. Money manager Charles Brandes is number 331 with an estimated wealth of $1.3 billion, even though his stock investment returns have been disappointing in recent years and money under management has dropped. Irwin Jacobs (pictured), retired chief executive of Qualcomm, is 372nd on the list at $1.15 billion. Beverly Hills-based Tom Gores, whose Platinum Equity owns the Union-Tribune, is 159th with estimated wealth of $2.5 billion. His brother Alec Gores, also in the private equity business, is number 227 with estimated wealth of $1.9 billion. Stockton's Alex Spanos, owner of the Chargers, is 375th with $1.1 billion.
