The current version of TextMate 1.5.x simply cannot technically handle  
too many levels of embedded languages.

jQuery doesn't know how it is embedded into something else. Every  
language that embeds Javascript would need to be changed to embed  
jQuery instead of javascript.

Many library syntaxes like jQuery aren't written to easily allow  
themselves to be embedded inside another language.
I'm currently working on revamping how all the Javascript syntaxes  
embed eachother and inherit and whatnot.

Try making a copy of the main syntax that is embedding javascript (EG:  
HTML) and then change it to embed jQuery instead.
It probably will make a terrible mess and won't work at first, but you  
might just get it working eventually.
I have quite a number of modified HTML syntaxes for embedding  
different things in different ways.
