If the hill is steep enough, and if you are going fast enough, with mild to heavy throttle pressure, or at highway speeds, with the cruise control set, the jerk you will feel is the transmission kicking out of overdrive as the engine applies more power to get over the hill. First thing I would do is check the Transmission fluid level. If it's ok then is the fluid "Burned" (used up). If it is burned have it and the filter changed. A good "reverse" flush even better (it will get the fluid in the torque converter also). Sounds like a Tranny problem but it could be "Engine Load" related, check the tranny first.
