First of all, the main difference between a Swiss Travel Pass (STP) and a Jungfrau Travel Pass (JTP) is the validity area. The STP is valid nationwide so you can use it for free travel from Zurich to Interlaken, and Interlaken to Grindelwald and Lauterbrunnen. Meanwhile, the JTP is only valid in the Jungfrau region so it covers travel between Interlaken, Grindelwald and Lauterbrunnen. You would need to get additional ticket from Zurich to Interlaken.
Secondly, the JTP includes unlimited rides on most mountain transportation in the Jungfrau region. This includes cable cars, gondolas and funiculars. With the STP, you pay half-price for mountain transportation so you would still need to arrange for discounted tickets for all your mountain excursions. So in terms of convenience, if your plan is focused in just one region, I think it's worth getting the JTP.
You can compare the 2 by looking at the validity map carefully:
Hope this helps.
