jade plant rapidly losing leaves

My jade plant is rapidly losing leaves and then the end of the branch shrivels. I believe I have overwatered it and the pot it’s in doesn’t have drain holes, so should I repot it in a pot with drain holes and add some perilite and light sand to soak up the excess moisture? Please help. I can’t lose this plant. What do I do to save it, as it’s rapidly dying?
