Brian, here's my two cents on that. My jerk is definitely my limiting factor on the C&J. I can jerk 105kg and standing press ~70kg, I weigh about 82kg.
I can't get out of the deep parallette bottom position of a HSPU, as you noted. I would guess that more strength in the bottom position of a jerk/HSPU would only help to increase the initial velocity of the bar in combination with the leg drive. I do plan on more full ROM HSPUs and standing presses to help with my jerks, I expect it to help.
