I'll start off by saying, it was refreshing to see someone like her be given a chance to play an active role on the X-teams back in the day, thet even though she lacked longevity, in comparison to characters like Storm and Psylocke, she was already kicking butt, whether it's helping out in Genosha, going to the outer limits of space, and eventually having a major role in Generation X...
Why should you care about Jubilee?
First of all
People care whether or not she's in an X-book.
Also, she's been around longer than a lot of these new characters, and by new, I mean the current students. I appreciate that she has matured throughout the years and can be looked up to by most; she's not perfect and not liked by everyone and that's ok. She's not just Wolverine's sidekick, but she's her own character, and grew out of being the Robin to his Batman. She's lived and lost, whether it be a friend or her powers. Even then, she was strong enough to overcome all those obstacles and come out on top in the end. She has her own look going on for her. She's not over-elegant, but is no plain jane, and dares to be different fashion-wise. Her powers have potential to be deadly, as seen in the Age of Apocalypse and according to those who have observed them. It's a shame they're gone, but here's hoping they come back and she can do some awesome stuff with them, not that making fireworks isn't. Overall, I appreciate Jubilee, I hope you can too.

Jubilee also survived on her own for many months at a time after her parents were murdered. This allowed her to gain skills such as lock-picking, petty theft, and stealth.

She is also trained in first-aid and CPR, using those skills on the field in numerous occasions.
