Just to confirm.
You want a list of the names of the tables that have a record with the value 'jquery' in the Name column?
Are these 58 tables the only tables, or if not can they be somehow identified (do all their names start with 'XXX' for example)

Quick and dirty suggestion..

Select * from
(Select Name , 'TableA' as TableName from TableA
Select Name , 'TableB' as TableName from TableB
Select Name , 'TableC' as TableName from TableC)

where Name = 'JQuery'

If this works for you you could always create a view out of the Union and select from that (assuming this isn't a one-off request)
