how to assign below permission to user who is already having db_owner permissions. like
1.deploy SSIS package
2. able to schedule jobs
3. able to reorg tables databases

according to my knowledge  
for deploy SSIS package i have given roles in MSDB to that user- DTsltduser, DTSadmin and DTSoperator.
for schdule jobs given SQL agent roles  SQL agent reader, SQL Agent user SQL agent operator

is the user in a domain or local admin group?
if yes, is there still the BUILTIN\administrator login defined in your sql server logins?
if yes => the sql login mentioned has, by default, the sysadm fixed server role
which makes the user can do anything.

you need to change at that level, accordingly
