It sounds like he shouldn't be jumping until he listens to you better on the flat. I'm no expert in jumping but I do know that horses should not speed off without listening to the rider after they jump.
Hopefully others experienced in jumping will weigh in :)
What I would do, though, is practice lots of transitions and get him really responding to your cues. Especially trot to halt, canter to halt. Etc. Add some backing up.
