Honestly, I don't call 3 bets with JJ. You either have enough history with the players that you 4 bet/call a shove, or fold.

re: Poker & $5 NLHE 6-max: How do you play JJ in this situation?
If you assumed MP is fish looks standard. It’s true that flatting pre gives hero bad position, but again I personally would not mind while MP is in the hand.
I don't see anything too wrong in folding, just that If MP is wild BU will go quite light on him. Also 3betting is ok, but I'm not sure what happens when either one shoves.
All in all, I'm not sure what is optimal.

JJ is one of the most difficult hands in Holdem. It is a really strong hand but not a monster. That's why you always have really close decisions with Jacks.
Folding JJ preflop to a single 3bet is still extremly nitty and and usually not the best option without knowing if the button is a really tight 3better. I'm not saying folding JJ oop is bad either but if you always fold JJ to a 3bet you're folding way to many hands.
I 4bet here and fold to a 5bet shove. I really don't understand why you called the shove. If you thought that you're hand is not strong enough to 4bet why did you call his 4bet shove ?
