Be firm and consistent and teach him to be gentle. Hugs and high fives instead of hitting/jumping on people. Keep him away from other kids (for a few minutes at a time) if he won't listen. Be patient and keep at it. He'll learn. I've been watching kids in the toddler age range off and on (more on than off) for 21 years... and he's going through a perfectly normal, though incredibly frustrating, stage.

You say you've tried everything but what have you actually tried? You need to be consistent, not just tell him a couple of times.
I would be holding and saying to him "no", we don't jump on people. Don't yell as he will think it's a game. Let him know that if he does it again he will go in time out and then follow through.
