Don't think of jumping per se - literally just lifting the feet. You can practice this with snatch balances, tall snatches and high-hang snatches to make it a little easier to focus on.

It may be that in the past when you've tried to pick up your feet, you've done it too soon. Follow through on the extension and move your feet as part of your movement under the bar - make sure it's occurring then and not as a part of your effort to elevate the bar.
