What is a friend? A single sould dwelling in two bodies.
1. Over watering
simply cut back on the watering. Jades can dry out between waterings.
2. Plant is root bound
Replant into a larger pot
3. Root Rot
cut way back on watering (it is almost impossible to save a Jade with root rot. You may want to incorporate some bone meal into the soil, before you water again. To help growth of roots. It may help.
4. Over Fertilization
Leach out the soil by slowly running water thru it for a couple of hours.

If you moved your jades inside, then they are probably reacting to to the change in light. In addition, they are not using nearly as much water inside, so unless you adjusted your watering schedule accordingly, then there is a good chance that your jades are overwatered and the roots may be rotting.
Your jades should be inside on your sunniest windowsill. Allow the soil to dry out almost completely before watering thoroughly. Frequent additions of small quantities of water is not a good idea.
Until your jades have fully recovered, do not even consider fertilizing or repotting. Both will merely aggravate the problem.
