The command sudo dscl . create /Users/username IsHidden 1 doesn't really create a full-fledged user. The user misses an UID and a PGID and some more attributes. Instead it creates a "rump user" with a new Native Attribut Type: IsHidden with the value 1.

This is probably the best option if you haven't created any extra data or customization since the jenkins was created. Be careful when deleting the jenkins user to make sure you don't delete original-...
