so you both are questioning the statement from pain that he was sure jiraiya was dead? pain has control over life and death. if anyone should know, it would be him...

as for an explanation, in this story there are souls. we see them in all the edo-tensei zombies. therefore jiraiya still had a soul after death and his soul would have been what willed his body back to life. it's not explained in that detail, but i dont see any other way of it happening
