c# run on the server
the jQuery calendar is built once the page is loaded by Jquery, in your browser
you browser have no idea of c#
c# have no idea of jQuery

you can send the value of the datepicker using usual method
<asp:TextBox id="datepicker" runat="server" />

$("#<%= datepicker.ClientID %>").datepicker(options);

I think I asked the question and didn't give enough information. I have a JQuery Datepicker, I need to get that value and use it in the code behind to call a SQL Database and use that value as a label on the same page as the calendar. I know how to create the label but do not know how to get the Datepicker value and use it in the code behind.

I don't have a C# example, but I can tell you that the general design pattern is a jQuery/AJAX request that will dynamically call a script on the server.  This article explains the theory of the AJAX interaction.  I'll see if I can put together an example that uses the datepicker.

Please see: http://iconoun.com/demo/ajax_datepicker.php

Here is the front-end (client-side) script:
<!doctype html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
<meta charset="utf-8">
<title>jQuery UI Datepicker - With AJAX Request</title>
<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery-1.10.2.js"></script>
<script src="//code.jquery.com/ui/1.11.2/jquery-ui.js"></script>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="//code.jquery.com/ui/1.11.2/themes/smoothness/jquery-ui.css">

<script>
$(function() {
    $("#picker").datepicker({
        onClose: function(picked){
            $.get("ajax_datepicker_server.php", {d:picked}, function(response){
                $("#output").html(response);
            });
        }
    });
});
</script>

</head>
<body>
<form>
<p>Date: <input name="chosen_date" type="text" id="picker" /></p>
</form>
<div id="output">The chosen date goes here</div>
</body>
</html>

And here is the back-end (server-side script).  All this does is reformat / regurgitate the information received from the client-side script, but in your real-life application this script would also update a database or do other meaningful processing with the date received from the datepicker.
<?php // demo/ajax_datepicker_server.php
error_reporting(E_ALL);

/**
 * A backend server-side script gets called from the jQuery "datepicker"
 * Receives a GET-method request with d= argument
 * Returns a reformatted date value via echo() for inclusion in a <div>
 */

// INTERPRET THE DATE STRING INTO A TIMESTAMP
$t = !empty($_GET['d'])
   ? strtotime($_GET['d'])
   : NULL
   ;

// IF THE TIMESTAMP IS UNUSABLE
if (!$t) die();

// REFORMAT INTO A PRETTY DATE AND SEND BACK AS IF BROWSER OUTPUT
$d = date('l, F jS, Y', $t);
die($d);
