What is a classy English word for jerk?

It would depend on how you are using it. If you mean 'jerk' as in 'pull', then 'tug', 'yank', 'wrench' or 'jolt' may fit the bill. If you mean 'jerk' as slang to degrade a person, then 'scoundrel', 'villain', 'blackguard', 'bounder', or 'cad' could fit the bill. If you mean 'jerk' as in 'jerk off', then the word would be 'masturbate'.
