Can you verify if they are still members of the serveradmin role?

Is there any chance the 'Builtin\Administrators' group was removed from the logins??

nopes ...they are still members of the server admin ....and they are able to login the server ...only prob is ...they are not able to see the jobs simple....:(
I guess removing the builtin\Admin group is not a possibility since they were able to login

What Service Pack patch level is the server at??  (Run select serverproperty('productlevel') to find this)

If its SP3 or higher, can you check if these users are listed under TargetServersRole database role in msdb database? If not, try adding them there to see if that helps..
