      You crush it and it gets injured. However, you can only stand on a jellyfish if it is stranded on the beach, and this usually only happens when they are dead, so you just are going to crush its carcass. If you try to stand on a jellyfish in water it will sink with you on top. Bad for you, not a problem for Mr Jellyfish :-).
