Jade plants are quite intolerant to frost, so high 30s would be okay temporarily, but anything below 32 would damage your plant. If you keep track of when frosts are predicted, you could bring your plant indoors just for those nights or weeks when it will be cold. You could also try covering them with a bucket or the suggestions in this article, but that might not protect them as fully as being brought indoors:
