Context is everything. His last edit is saved in jpeg with the expectation that it will not be modified and resaved, which would result in a loss of quality.

The loss in quality, which hardly would anyone notice, happens when the file is saved in JPEG, i.e., once. If it is opened and resaved as a JPEG, there will be loss in quality as well

Each time it's reopened and saved again

but then there will be loss if it was a TIFF to begin with.

Tiff is lossless. Save to tiff from raw. Stick with tiff until final edit.
