Why are other dogs jumping up on you?  

Does your dog have the same reaction if you just pet another dog?  Does the reaction happen only when another dog jumps up on you?  If it’s just the jumping, my gut feeling is to stop being in situtations where other dogs jump up on you.

We just started taking our dog to the dog park a couple times.  We’ve been working with a lot of fear aggression issues with our rescue and she’s come a long way.  I noticed if DH started paying attention to another dog, our dog would be concerned and go over to figure it out.  

I think it’s a training issue for you.  When your dog starts getting upset at the other dog – I’d put your dog in a sit and then a down, and focus your attention on him to get him to calm down.  Keep working on it, until your dog knows what behavior to show when other dogs are around (regardless of what they are doing – eg: jumping up to play with you).
