Why is the "j" of "jakkesæt" pronounced as "jakke" and not "yakke"?

It's not. It's just the "T" sound from the previous word running on to the "YA" sound in "jakkesæt".

She is a wife in the army. Not to be confused with an army wife.

Can you also say: 'the mother has a green jacket,' or is that something completely different?

"The mother has a green jacket" is "Møren har en grøn jakke." Luckily, Danish is related to English, and jakke's form is closer to jacket, while jakkesæt's form is a bit closer to suit.
