I think you may need a good behaviorist to help you.

They are probably both wanting to be top dog. They may settle their differences once they figure out who is going to be “big dog”.

If you just got the JRT, give it some time. Keep them separated unless supervised, maybe see if they can learn to get alone on neutral ground.

I don’t know a lot about modifying aggression but it can be done.

Good luck, I am sure you will get it worked out.
