The soil that you added was contaminated with mold spores. Keeping the soil too moist may also be contributing to the mold growth.

I suggest that you undo your up-potting, which I am quite sure was unnecessary, remove the soil you added, and put the plant back in its original pot. Having your Jade in a small pot will help prevent overwatering because small pots do not retain as much moisture. Jades have small, fine root systems and belong in very small pots.

More plant problems begin with unnecessary repotting than with any other cause. Resist the urge to repot!!
