On the first of September 2009, he announced his retirement at St Kilda's best and fairest. In the first quarter of the 2008 Semi Final against Collingwood, he received a heavy knock to his hip, which required surgery. It was serious enough to sideline him for the entire 2009 season. After what seemed to be a successful rehabilitation, he had arthroscopy, which revealed he had lost too much cartilage in the hip. After 4 senior games, he retired choosing quality of life.[1]

Jarryd is currently an assistant coach at St Mary's Salesian Amateur Football Club in the Victorian Amateur Football Association's Division 2 grade.
