If jogging is hurting you than you should not be jogging.  With a patella dislocation you can irritate the surfaces of the bone from friction between the patella and the femur.  You should be focusing on strengthening your quadriceps muscles for stability in the patellofemoral joint. Until adequate strength is attained you should only be using a stationary bike to avoid increased forces on the knee joint and to help avoid pain.  

Best in Health,
