What parameters are given to jack to connect to the audio hardware?  If
you are using a number (e.g. hw:0 )then checkt the documentation for how
to refer to an audio interface by name instead of by number.  The number
assigned to the interface can change between reboots, but if you only have
one of each type the name should stay the same.
You should be able to find the name with the aplay -l  command.  For
example, my M-Audio card has the name M2496:

$ aplay -l
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: M2496 [M Audio Audiophile 24/96], device 0: ICE1712 multi [ICE1712
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 1: HDMI [HDA ATI HDMI], device 3: HDMI 0 [HDMI 0]
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
