All healthy, average weight cats are good jumpers (and by human standards, amazing jumpers) but some are better than others. Cats do vary in their skills just as they do in their characters.
Here are two extremes:
Admittedly the bad jumper is overweight and he might be middle-aged or older. The slender super-jumper is very impressive indeed. You can see how he hauls himself up the last couple of feet.
The jumping ability comes from fast twitch muscles, long levers (long bones in the legs providing excellent leverage) and excellent orientation skills. You’ll see a cat sway his head from side to side at the target or landing zone. He does this to get a good fix on the position by using his binocular vision.
Dwarf cats such as the Munchkin have short legs. They can still jump well but less well than a normal cat because they have less leverage.
Good jumping skills probably also depends on the confidence of the cat. Outgoing confident cats might be better jumpers than timid cats.
Probably the world’s best cat jumper is the cougar – powerful hind quarters and long limbs.
