      You don't have to 3-bet KJo when you have no idea how the guy is going to react, tho I understand why you do it by default.

      As played just c-bet the flop. He's an unknown and it's hard to hit, for all you know he has a ton of whiffed overcards in his range as well.

      As played turn is fine and river I would fold. Either he checked back some draw and now he's bluff-raising the river, or he checked back a big hand that beats Jx and he's value-raising the river. I think it's more likely he's strong personally, tho I wouldn't hate a call depending on his timing, it's certainly possible some people show some busted draws there sometimes.

      Hope it helps.
