Shooting JPG should still work, as long as one actually takes 2+ images at different exposure levels. The main thing lost by not shooting RAW is the ability to further adjust the exposure post-hoc.

The most important things to do when taking photos for HDR are to use a tripod (or stable flat surface) and to vary the exposure by changing the shutter speed while keeping a constant aperture (the photos won't line up properly if the aperture changes and alters the depth-of-field).
