    That is an incomplete sentence. If you start with "If I say ...", you have to continue with another clause.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I assume you mean: He jumped on me and somehow I managed to push him off me.

    It's unnatural in this short sentence to repeat "me", the meaning is entirely clear without it.

    If I said "Push him off me", would it be correct?
