This is VERY common in this breed, particularly if they need more exercise than they are getting. Jack Russells need a LOT of exercise (a well exercised JRT is a well behaved JRT) and can benefit greatly from basic obedience training.
Obedience classes may help you get him to come to you when you call, but short of getting into a training program with your dog, and being very careful around doors, there's not much more advice I can give you.
There are several books available from Amazon through our recommended reading booklist that might help you, too.
