The command "ps aux" lists processes "ps aux|grep jack" lists processes, 
and search for any string with the content "jack".
Find the process id, and kill it with "kill processnumber".
You can kill all processes named jackd with the command "killall jackd".
If you prefer graphical apps, gnome-system-monitor can do this also.
