Is the Raspbian Jessie repository still up and maintained?

Probably a temporary outage. It happens from time to time.
My mind is like a browser. 27 tabs are open, 9 aren't responding,
lots of pop-ups...and where is that annoying music coming from?

I flashed a Jessie card to check it out, and I too got an error on the raspbian repo, but I also noticed the response time and speed from the other repo was very slow. So I retried a few times and was eventually able to connect to both repos.

Then I tried an update on my Pi3 with Stretch and it also seemed slow (slower than usual, anyway). And curiously, Stretch was much slower on the raspberrypi.org repo. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

So yea, something is going on with the repos today. Hopefully it'll get sorted soon.

I've tried it again just right now, and still the same symptoms as I was observing yesterday. Hopefully, this gets resolved soon.

It's not run by Mythic Beasts, but we have a login to the machine so I've increased the number of workers as it wasn't recycling connections quick enough.
