I do have one healty Jujube that has been blooming for the last 3 years
not one single fruit so far
when I bought it, the people at the nursery told me, it was self fertile, no pollenator needed
now their website claims the opposite
I suppose I have either a Sherwood or a Li
so now I am looking for a Lang as compangnion/pollintor

so far I found two different sources, both in FL,
can someone please comment
on both the need for a pollenator and a good place to buy one, please?

I can't say about the quality of any company I list here, since I have not bought any trees, but here are some things I found:

Willis Orchards is GA based.
Aaron's Farm is also GA based.
Peaceful Valley My experiences with them for seeds have been positive.
Edible Landscaping is VA based, but has more than the standard 2 varieties and seem to be decent.
Trees of Antiquity I really like this company, but since I have yet not bought trees, I haven't seen how good they are service-wise. Bonus, they have 6 varieties!

I found dozens of others in a quick search, but these are the ones that most caught my attention for various reasons. Two of them are far closer to you than Florida.

Sometimes asian supermarkets (if there is one in the nearest big city to you) sell them in pots; the one nearest me has a variety of fruit trees in the early spring.

I ordered once from Willis, and would never do so again. Unless you're getting something unusual (pawpaws, etc), from good nurseries it's pretty common to have first year tree survival rates between 95 and 100% (excluding the trees killed by mammals: deer, rabbits, guys with lawnmowers). The one order I put into Willis had about a 20% survival rate.

I haven't ordered from Aaron's, but supposedly they are associated with TyTy nursery which has one of the worst reputations out there.

Before ordering from a new place, check out their rating on Dave's Garden Watchdog:

We should throw him a surprise party. It will cheer him up. We can use this tiny ad:
