You can try using photorec (part of the testdisk suite). It has many different file formats that can be recovered. The website doesn't specifically list jfs as a supported filesystem, but it's worth a shot.

...and before you do anything best make a backup of the disk or partition just in case.

There's also:
http://jfsrec.sourceforge.net/

But, most likely the HDD may be failing.
