Hello from Maryland. After so many years not having the greatest of light my jade has become spindly (just discovered this word today). What, if anything, can I do to make this fuller? Pruning-wise how far back can I prune this or am i stuck with a plant with really long stems? Many thanks for any help.

Yes, you can prune your Jade. Decide what you want it to look like and then prune to encourage that shape. New branches will grow at the node just below the cut. I don't think there is ever a 'too much' with Jade plants. After you prune, be patient. It sometimes takes awhile for the plant to respond with new growth.
