The mealy bugs here seem to prefer other plants
but I can see how soft growing conditions might make jades attractive to them.
Patio and garden photos here since it's overcast and the colors are pretty good. This is the wild type jade (Crassula ovata) and a variant called "Gollum" which is similar to the plant in the original post, both about to flower. They need very strong light to flower (perhaps outdoor sun) and short days trigger the process (so now is the time). That plant in the ground is suffering a bit from drought (last it rained was half an inch in May, and before that in February), thus the small rosettes at the end of the stems.
The red edges on the leaves are due to the exposure (full sun) and are a pretty reliable indicator that a plant is getting enough light.
