Mommy to kids
He can definitely jump with both feet. Wait, do you mean from a standing position, or off of something? Well, I guess he can do both, actually. But he has two older siblings to keep up with, so he's always been a little more driven to develop those gross motor skills.
I have a friend who had a three year old much like yours sounds. She also had baby #2 in his 3rd year, and it seemed to increase his anxiety. He was terrified of walking across the catwalks at the playground, for example, and was afraid of smoke alarms. At the time, I thought that there might be some issues, but he is now 6.5 and is perfectly normal and actually ahead with everything. So I don't know if I would be worried. Different kids focus on different things at different times. My 3 yo is also very verbal and very imaginative, but it comes at the expense of listening and behavior in a big way. It's just not a current focus for him, apparently.

He can jump from a standing position on one foot though? Or what do you mean by one footed?
Not being able to jump off the ground at three would be a gross motor delay. Seems as if your sister could give suggestions perhaps?
Will he try to imitate your drawing? Like if you draw a l or a _ or a O will he try to do the same thing or is it just scribbles? Asking because imitating a simple shape like that is on the 18month ASQ so I'm guessing they expect a 3 year old to be able to do it.
If he is delayed in your sisters area, can she work with him?
