In brief: Yes
The pressure of jumping without bending your knees will force the locking of the patella against the tibia bone.
This will cause a shock effect to the tibia, patella and the femur leading to your pain.

In brief: Usually, PTFS is
A result of a biomechanical abnormality where there's a high angle between your leg and thigh (q angle) resulting in an increased amount of stress on the patella and patellar tendon.
