Answer: If your jasmine was healthy prior to planting it in the ground, I suspect it's going through some transplant shock. In addition, it's normal for evergreens such as your jasmine to lose its oldest leaves at this time of year. The plant will replace the lost leaves later this spring. In the meantime, continue to water your plant on a weekly basis. If you have a lot of rain, you may not need to water, so check the soil moisture content before watering by digging down near your plant. If the soil is moist three-inches below the surface, you won't need to water. If it is dry, it's time to water.
Hope your jasmine perks up soon!
