JavaScript is a language, jQuery is a tool built in that same language. Nowadays there is very little in jQuery that's worth the extra overhead that you can't do in standard JavaScript. There are some great tools out there for various needs and various sized sites, but personally I don't find jQuery to be among them anymore.
