Try to update to a recent version of JadeTeX. It was patched recently to
support rule object as inline elements. You will also probably want to
use the layer property to put it above the text. Since it is an inline
element, you can't insert new line to put the text below it. I put
a line above my footers  using :

(make rule
    orientation: 'escapement
    length: 10cm
    line-thickness: 0.4pt
    layer: 1)
