Houseplants forum: help identifying a house plant

Hello! I purchased this guy on sale, and he had no identification. Google has left my husband and I stumped. Any ideas?

The brown marks on the tips of the few of the leaves were there when we bought it about a month ago; but we just noticed today it looks like there may be a new issue...mold? Not sure if it's too late for him; if anyone knows more about the mold or brown spots, I'd love to know if there's anything we can do to stop it!

Thank You!

sorry to say, it is looking a bit mildewey on a number of the leaves. I don't know the plant.

Yes a very poorly Kalanchoe. I would doubt it would recover from what looks like several problems. Bin it, and buy a nice new one.
