This is nicely shot, and the jump cut isn't horrible, but it isn't right either.

I would almost, like to stay on the tight shot, I like the intensity. Especially for the subject matter. But I know it would be impossible due to the length of the piece. He needs to be looking at the camera, and not off, because he is speaking to the viewer. Interviews style would be less effective.

My suggestion would be to separate the cameras even wider, almost 90 degrees. Then he can do a head turn from one camera to the other. Cut on the motion/change of thought. This will help the jump cut. Not sure if your location and lighting can accompany this idea.
