Danke Jannis,
I just found out that ffmpeg can receive from jack and send to icecast2

ffmpeg -f jack -ac 2 -i ffmpeg -acodec libmp3lame -ab 128k -content_type
audio/mpeg -f mp3 icecast://source:password@your.icecast.server:8000/stream

If anyone has any suggestions for optimizations, eg. alternative/better
codecs (opus?) feel free to let me know!
