I suppose you want jack to always start with your device?

Forcing your hardware to load in a certain order is not a good option.
Instead, start jack with the name of your device, instead of the hw

For instance, the result of me running: cat /proc/asound/cards

0 [PCH            ]: HDA-Intel - HDA Intel PCH
                      HDA Intel PCH at 0xf1600000 irq 43

The name of the card in this case is "PCH" (I only have one atm). So, in
my case I would start jack using hw:PCH, instead of hw:0.
