I believe at least one my Jade plants may be over 30 years old and still striving beautifully.
Your plant may have powdery mildew. Read the following:

"Powdery mildew on houseplants is a fungal disease. Initially, it produces circular powdery white spots on the foliage of plants. ... It occurs when there is poor air circulation, low light, and unlike outdoor powdery mildew, thrives in drier conditions."

Also:
"Powdery Mildew Remedy For Jade Plants:
A popular home remedy to spray on the leaves of your jade plant is comprised of one tablespoon baking soda, one teaspoon of non-detergent soap combined with one gallon of water.

This can be used on a daily basis, if you continue to see white spots reappearing."

Best to remove the infected leaves and arrange the plant so that it gets better circulation. Do not over water or the roots may rot.

Here is a good site for more information.

If you see any signs of salt residue you should switch to using bottled or distilled water.

My first line of defense is to remove bad leaves.

That usually resolves the issue. If it persists post back with photos.

I have a 30 year old Jade and it comes back after most any minor setback.
