Newest Photoshop on Adobe CC does not properly export images with transparent background as a JPEG. JPEGs with transparent background instead come out with white backgrounds...must be exported as a PNG.

JPEG cannot have transparency. That's not a bug, that is a limit of the JPEG file format.

PNG supports full transparency, and GIF supports limited (1 color) transparency.
