Back on 2+2 with ICM punt or cooler?!

Back on here after a long layoff. Back story is that I have run JJ in >QQ (one hand was JJ vs AJ and A on River) about 5 times in the last 15 tourneys when we were <5 handed.

Table '2501526096 1' 9-max Seat #5 is the button
Seat 2: Hero (31300 in chips)
Seat 5: Tight Nit (14174 in chips)
Seat 9: Loose Villain (94526 in chips)
Hero: posts the ante 85
Tight Nit: posts the ante 85
Loose Villain: posts the ante 85
Loose Villain: posts small blind 350
Hero: posts big blind 700
*** HOLE CARDS ***
Dealt to Hero [Jc Jd]
Tight Nit: folds
Loose Villain: raises 1400 to 2100
Hero: raises 3900 to 6000
Loose Villain: raises 10100 to 16100
Hero: raises 15115 to 31215 and is all-in
Loose Villain: calls 15115
*** FLOP *** [8s 6s 9h]
*** TURN *** [8s 6s 9h] [9c]
*** RIVER *** [8s 6s 9h 9c] [4s]
*** SHOW DOWN ***
Loose Villain: shows [Qd Qc] (two pair, Queens and Nines)
Hero: shows [Jc Jd] (two pair, Jacks and Nines)
Loose Villain collected 62685 from pot
Hero finished the tournament in 3rd place and received 47600.
*** SUMMARY ***
Total pot 62685 | Rake 0
Board [8s 6s 9h 9c 4s]
Seat 2: Hero (big blind) showed [Jc Jd] and lost with two pair, Jacks and Nines
Seat 5: Tight Nit (button) folded before Flop (didn't bet)
Seat 9: Loose Villain (small blind) showed [Qd Qc] and won (62685) with two pair, Queens and Nines

Several minutes later I check back to see that the Tight Nit had come even in chips with the Loose Villain.

I seriously consider folding to his min 5 bet but couldn't get Ax picture out of my head, so I jammed.

Cooler not ICM punt?

Cooler, don't fold, although to properly consider icm we would need to know the payouts.

There's virtually no possible 3 handed situation (besides satellite) where JJ is a fold pre.
