It is a smiley that is the culprit. In Microsoft Outlook, when you type a smiley, they use a non-standard way of coding it - which aligns with the "J" character in non-microsoft world.
The problem is outlined in more detail here:
Not sure about solutions though sorry!

If you install Microsoft Office: Mac, the J's will show up as the intended smilies, and now you can get Microsoft Office: Mac for $10 month as a part of Office 365.
I have to have office installed (even though I prefer Apple's iWork Suite) just for work, but seeing the Js as the smilies intended by my Outlook-using collegues has been an added benefit.
