That means that there is no text layer. jpg files don't know about text, just 
about pixels.  If you saved the image yourself as jpg, you should have 
received a small warning box saying you'll lose all layer information in that 
format.  If someone else gave you the jpg, complain to them :)

If you want to keep all (or nearly all) information about your layers, modes, 
masks, selection and text, you should save the image as "xcf", that's GIMP's 
own format.

I hope this isn't too bad news for you...
