Be careful: If you leak with stress (cough, sneeze etc) then you probably will leak when you jump (or at least when you land). Do keels, get checked out by your doc. If it's urge incontinence jumping may make it worse but there are good meds for this. www.peedoc.com.

Why limit activities: Embarrassed about uncontrollable urine leakage when you cough, sneeze, or exercise? There is a solution if kegel exercises fail, called a urethral sling. In less than 10 minutes a synthetic tape is inserted through a 1/2 inch incision in the roof of the vagina under the urethra to restore support to the pubic bone. Normal activity in days. 80-90% report improvement. Imagine freedom from pads!
