    Jaxx has 12 word seed for backup -- maybe use that to restore wallet in Electrum.

    I doubt it's compatible, it uses its own derivation (at least in 2.6.4). You can use Exodus (https://www.exodus.io/) with the same mnemonic (word seed) to recover funds however.

    Doesn't mean it uses the same hash...

    I think Exodus is best option, but need one more step.

    Jaxx uses two path(External and Internal), but Exodus uses External only.
    As Jaxx reuses m/44'/5'/0'/1/0 as change address(Internal), need to extract privkey of the address.

    1) import 12 words mnemonic to Exodus
    2) Use bip39 tool, standalone offline version or online version to get privkey
    3) import the privkey to Exodus

    https://github.com/iancoleman/bip39

    Code:
    1) select 12 words
    2) enter your 12 words mnemonic or press Generate to test
    3) select Dash (m/44'/5'/0'/0)
    4) check derived address and priv key
    5) change External / Internal to 1 (m/44'/5'/0'/1)
    6) check derived address and priv key
