Any guesses? As to the causes of these brown spots?
They about a year old.

It is the destiny of all leaves to decline and fall off. Normally the leaves should last 12 to 24 months. A porous soil could allow excessive drying now and again that would shorten life span. I would plant it out now and prepare the site well and the plant will thrive in a balanced soil.

I’m not sure where you live due to the postcode but if you are in Qld, your jackfruit should be in a much bigger pot for starters. The leaves look like they are sunburnt or burnt from liquid fertiliser? A plant that size should be in a bigger pot, or in the ground and in full sun.
I’ve recently planted 10 jackfruit, start of spring, about that size and they are going great in full sun. Having said that, if your plant isn’t used to full sun, ease into it and it should be fine.

I have since found out you are in California so I can’t help you much in relation to inground planting or weather situations, but I would certainly put it in a bigger pot👍

yes, Californoa inland from Los Angeles Zone 9b i think
Gets very Hot for about a month in summer with avg days in 96, some hitting 115, Winders get cold too at nite avg 40's for 1 month, can get a couple of days near 30, i seen 27 once
I know, not a Tropical place, but that is the fun of it to me, to try to get these guys to grow.
We also have very hard water. I been using water that goes thru a softener system. Someone Told me that was bad, So am gonna try alternating between distilled water and hard water that does NOT go thru the softener

Hello,
I am wondering if those brown spots are caused by excess fertilizer or trace elements like boron ( see photo of citrus leaves ).
I live in NSW Australia and my small jackfruit plants were burnt by the sun on a very hot day, 40C / 105F. Whole leaves turned brown overnight but not like your brown spots. Also I agree that a bigger pot is required which also allows room for tap root to grow down
