Jumping is something that can easily be inadvertently rewarded by yourself or by other people.

What type of exercise and stimulation is he getting in a day? The type usually matters more than the duration.

Teach him a non-compatible behavior. That is, if he knows it's more rewarding to sit for a greeting, he will offer that more than he will jump until it no longer becomes an issue.

Also, it really works if you turn away from the dog when he jumps on you. Any touching, for example pushing him down, the dog perceives as a reward.
