that is a bit beyond the scope of Jailkit, but lets give that a try.

If the process has to handle files from many different users it has to 
run as root, or the process must be started for each individual user.

so you have the choice to start the process from each users' crontab and 
run the process for each user separately. The cron daemon runs outside 
the chroot jail, so the process has access to the complete system, even 
though it runs as user that has jk_chrootsh as shell.
