Is there a way to redirect the user from one page to another using JQuery?

You can make use of the below code:
window.location.href = 'your_url';   

Although, location.replace(URL) is the best way, but if you want to let the search engines know about your action add the rel="canonical" meta tag.

Adding a noscript section with a HTML refresh meta tag in it, is also a good solution. I suggest you to use this JavaScript redirection tool to create redirections. It also has Internet Explorer support to pass the HTTP referrer.

Sample code without delay looks like this:
<!-- Pleace this snippet right after opening the head tag to make it work properly -->

<link rel="canonical" href="https://yourdomain.com/"/>
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;URL=https://yourdomain.com/">
<!--[if lt IE 9]><script type="text/javascript">var IE_fix=true;</script><![endif]-->
<script type="text/javascript">
var url = "https://yourdomain.com/";
if(typeof IE_fix != "undefined") // IE8 and lower fix to pass the http referer
document.write("redirecting..."); // Don't remove this line or appendChild() will fail because it is called before document.onload to make the redirect as fast as possible. Nobody will see this text, it is only a tech fix.
var referLink = document.createElement("a");
referLink.href = url;
else { window.location.replace(url); } // All other browsers
