You should lift the Jade plant from the soil and carefully remove all the contaminated soil and grubs from around the roots of the plant.
Keep this soil together and dispose of, do not compost it.
Wash the pot with a diluted bleach mixture to clean it.
Repot the Jade plant with new potting soil as per the article below.
