In brief: It depends
If a broken leg heals in good alignment jumping ability is unlikely to be affected.
If there is nonhealing, shortening, malrotation, or malalignment there may a residual effect. However, it would depend on the severity of the injury and what the limb looks like after it is healed.

In brief: Broken bone
Depends on which bone and the type of fracture, but there will be possible effects on jumping abilities to some degree.

Did you get your ankle fixed ? The ankle mortise is widened and should have been repaired.
