      1) 3bet size is too small. Make it somewhere between 10-12bb.
      2) As a general rule of thumb, don't raise something for value if you are not willing to go all-in, unless you are very positive that he calls with many worse hands, but only re-raises you with a range of hands which has your hand crushed.

      In this case, I think QQ will fare ok vs his shoving range, so I would call it off. JJ is more of a fold. I feel like people tend to 4bet smaller with AA/KK so the shove may be more indicative of a hand like JJ or AK which doesn't really want to see a flop with money still left behind.
