It may be worth trying *without* it (i.e. treat "surrogateescape" as
equivalent to "strict" initially), and seeing how you go. The main purpose
of surrogateescape in CPython 3 is to recreate the "arbitrary 8-bit data
round trips work on POSIX" aspect of CPython 2, which doesn't apply in
exactly the same way on Jython.

Compared to the 8-bit vs 16-bit str discrepancy that exists in Python 2,
"surrogateescape is equivalent to strict" seems like a relatively small
discrepancy in behaviour.
