I would suggest not letting anyone pet him, especially if he "wants" them to. If someone wants to, ask them not to right away, chat to them for a few minutes, let him sniff around them, etc. If then, they try pet him and he gets excited, as them to stop, don't let him get over excited, if he starts jumping, stop with the attention until he realizes "If i stop, they pet me, i could get used to this!" Hopefully, eventually, he will begin to wait, maybe impatiently, but it should help a little.
added- and if he jumps at someone, have everyone ignore him. He'll soon work out that he's not getting anywhere, and he'll give up. If he calmly walks away after however long, give him what he craves, ATTENTION!!!
