For starters, even people who think they know what they are doing on boats loose a halyard up the mast now and then but just don't like to admit it. It is all fixable though.
I don't understand if the jib halyard came through the mast head altogether, or if one end is stuck at the mast head, or which end of the halyard is stuck up there. Also depends if the halyard is routed inside the mast our outside.
A picture or 2 might help. You will figure it out.
Best of luck.
