What will happen if I start jumping on the lunar surface?

You'll probably go higher than you would on earth. You wouldn't start floating away. If the moon has enough pull to cause the tides, it has enough gravity to keep you grounded.

You definitely go higher since your weight is less on the moon (although you will also be wearing a cumbersome suit which reduces the effect) due to the smaller mass of the moon. If you are even slightly fit, you shouldn't get tired until after at least half an hour....
