Jiffy lube stripped my oil pan and it is costing me $500 to repair my Honda Accord 2011 according to my other mechanic. Am I being ripped off?

Can you prove that Jiffy Lube damaged your oil pan? Unlikely that you can, but if so, then they should be paying for the repairs.
To replace an oil pan in a Honda Accord involves purchasing the new pan, disconnecting the suspension, raising the engine, cutting off the new pan gasket, and the reverse to refit. Quite possibly a front-end alignment may be needed also. I'd call it pretty much a 6hour job to do it, plus parts.
