Why is it "jeune" instead of "jeun" with le (masculine) homme?

"jeune" meaning young has an "e" on the end for both masculine and feminine.

why is "Le jeune homme est gros" wrong?

Because it would mean that the young man is fat. Not a nice thing to say :)

It really sounds more like "gros" than "grand"...
