  it is likely more work than worth it.

  why not fix what isn't working?

  the release notes for stretch should cover most of
what has significantly changed.

  if i were in a similar spot i'd consider backing up 
the home directories and setting up a different partition
and installing jessie to that partition (leaving stretch
alone for now).  then as you get time figure out what
needs to be fixed for stretch.

  and next time, you'll know to not blindly say "Y" to
udpates without reading the list of packages first.
