Jam and preserve are the same. Marmalade is a preserve containing fruit rind

Don't really think there is to much of a difference besides the kind of fruit used... Now jellies use pectin

Technecially, preserves have lower brix (less solids) then jams, but by only a couple of degrees. Large jam manufacturers save money by producing preserves, since they do not have to cook as long to reduce the moisture.

I often think of preserves as being a little more rustic (more fruit solids, sometimes seeds). Marmalade, as far as I know, is restricted to citrus and contains the rinds. To make matters even more complex, there are also conserves, which may contain fresh and dried fruits as well as nuts.
