How do you kill all open jobs?

If we open like 12 jobs at the same time, and they're all in the background, is there anyway to close all of them at the same time? I tried "jobs -x kill", but it didn't work.

Sounds like it's the domain of the kill command, try

kill $(jobs -p)

Let me know if it works.

That's funny. People are not getting jobs, and you are here to kill those jobs???
