I do not see this as a jail or pf problem.
Look at commenting out any mod_* from the httpd.conf file that the html 
application does not use. Check that the 3 apache jails are not using 
the same service port (80). Do not use the apache default directory 
location for holding your html application files. Disable the pf 
firewall in rc.conf and test if this speeds up apache.
