I'm certainly not going to "raise for information" .
JJ would probably c-bet that flop but then would slow down either on the turn or river, although it depends on opponent.
If he flat calls our 4bet rather than 5bet shoving, we still have the same problem if the flop brings an A or K. So really our 4bet isn't the solution to all the trouble, it actually might make us lose value vs JJ/TT/99/88/AK cause they might fold to it, and against those hands on a dry flop you can shove the c-bet and have a good chance to get his whole stack.
Without knowing what the flop brings its impossible to know which strategy is best. You could get one that kills all action but its more likely you won't. You have position and if you flat call his 3bet you're pretty much disguising your queens. Out of all the possible flops you're more likely to get one that allows you to get alot of chips in the pot when ahead rather than not, all due to the power of deception.
