Resizing logo smaller makes it pixelated when put into a PDF

A little background on our company logo, it was made by another company in Illustrator, they then put into Photoshop for us, it is all in one layer. I then saved it to a .jpg for my coworker to place into a PDF. I only have an Intro to Photoshop under my belt so I am still pretty new at all of this.

The logo is 1.56in x .8 in and 300px resolution. We are not making it too much smaller, we are unsure of the actual size it needs to be so we are just going by what looks best in the PDF.

Currently my co-worker is taking it from its .jpg form placing it into a Word doc, saving that word doc as a PDF. Then she uses Adobe Acrobat X Pro to copy and paste (using the objects function) the logo into the PDF. Each time the logo looks pixelated. Is there a way around this? I have the free trial version of PS (Photoshop CC Version 14.0x32)

Thank You

Saving from Word, or placing in Acrobat could be reducing the resolution of the JPEG.

Try just saving from Illustrator as PDF and placing that in Acrobat.
