In MTU, the person wouldn't suffer any consequence until they stepped out of the ship. The instant they did, their velocity and vector would be different from the ship in minute ways. That means they are highly unlikely to be able to reenter the ship. If tethered to the ship they might be able to reenter it depending on their level of zero G and vac suit skills. If not...

They and the ship would continue inside the jump well to the point of collapse, just like the ship. The time to this point would be approximately equal to that of the ship, be it hours or days. There would be slight differences between the two.
The end result is the person stepping out of the ship dies when their suit air runs out and they might be recovered after the jump ends in normal space if the ship can find them. They will also be eligible for a Darwin Award.
