That depends on your jpg.  If everything is touching and you need all the images, it could be tough.  However, most sites today don't need all the slicing and dicing of the past decade.  Instead, your jpg is a guide.    If you can post your image, we can give you more details.

Although Photoshop advertises its ability to turn your art into a web page, its abilities are very limited and poorly executed. The approach that they take is what web designers would consider a clumsy hack.

Basicly, it directs you to cut your image up into slices, then it builds a table to put each of these slices into. The trouble is you gain nothing for your effort. In fact, studies have shown that your large, original image will actually load faster and take up much less space than the same image cut up and loaded into a table. [You can click on the CSS option and it actually makes things worse]

The only advantage of doing things this way is that you can take a slice from the table and turn it into a roll-over or a button.

The basics of CSS are really and truly very easy to learn. There are some advanced techniques that get a little tricky, but the same can be said of Photoshop.

What most web designers do is mock up a website using Photoshop, then load that image onto a blank web page and start writing code to duplicate it on top of the image, using the image as a spacing guide.

Or, they make mock up a website, slice it up, then throw away the generated code and the useless slices and make use of the key slice images on a new site with their own code.

Like padas says, give us a look at your image and we can set you in the right direction.

very basic and quick
I didn't take time to get the exact color but you can use and you will just need to cut out the top logo area and that is it.  (make sure the header background matches).   You could make the oval in css as well.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<meta charset=utf-8 />
  <div id="container">
    <div id="header">
    <div id="body">
      <div class="leftcol">left</div>
      <div class="main">Main
        <h2>I am a header</h2>
        <div>I am content</div>

If you want to get more complex, this can put into a responsive grid like bootstrap as well in order to account for multiple screen widths.
