"Your Jump check is modified by your speed. If your speed is 30 feet
then no modifier based on speed applies to the check. If your speed is
less than 30 feet, you take a -6 penalty for every 10 feet of speed less
than 30 feet. If your speed is greater than 30 feet, you gain a +4 bonus
for every 10 feet beyond 30 feet."
Once your character carries a medium load, his speed drops from 30 feet
to 20 feet (in the case of a human). So, according to the cited rule,
you incur a -6 penalty to your Jump check in addidtion the the -3 armor
check penalty from the load.
