You problem is not correctly formulated.

CPython (the classical interpreter) and Jython are two interpreters. I.e. they both are programs implemented in two different languages.

Compatibility between all interpreters is mainly insured but there are some slight differences which are listed here:

In anycase, they both interpret Python files (or modules). As rospy is written in Python you should be able to use rospy with Jython. Again the best way is to try to import the module and see what happens.
