JQuery is excellent, but it has limitations, and using JQuery exclusively to build a web app on the client side can make your code difficult to maintain, depending on the complexity of your app. 

AngularJS is a Google-funded framework, which is based on JQuery - it uses JQuery at its core. You can develop more complex apps in a much simpler way than with JQuery, using Angular, and still use JQuery for interface 'special effects' and extra interactivity, if you wish. Angular is easy to well-documented, easy to learn, and has an active and helpful online community:

http://angularjs.org/

There are many, *many* frameworks out there for building client-side javascript-based web apps. Most of them are complex, and will require a substantial amount of commitment for you to learn effectively. Some of the better known ones are:

http://sproutcore.com/
http://cappuccino.org/
http://dojotoolkit.org/
http://emberjs.com/

IMHO, Angular is currently the best in terms of ease of learning, and features - and one of the ones likely to last the longest, due to its Google backing.

I hope this helps.
