They were originally developed in the 1950s for the New Jersey Highway Department. link

They're called Jersey Walls because they come from New Jersey. It's a 'Jersey thing.

"Jersey barriers were developed in the 1950s, beginning in the U.S. State of New Jersey as separators between lanes of a highway."
