I got jailbreaking iPhone 6 with iOS 9. Silly me, I haven't backed up my iPhone before jailbreaking. So it is impossible to restore from iCloud or iTunes. Is it possible for me to find backup my lost contacts?

You can't recover them. If no backup has been created, then recovery isn't possible. It doesn't matter if you use a jalbreaked or stock iPhone. That data is stored on a section that no application can be used to recover it.

The backup through iTunes or iCloud is actually the recommended/safest way to recover the data when something bad happens.

Step 1: Choose the Recovery Mode
To begin with, you need to connect your iPhone devices to the computer via its USB cable, then launch the program on your personal computer to bring up the start window. Select "Recover from iOS Device" to scan and get back your lost contacts from the iPhone directly.

Step 2: Preview & Find the Contacts You Need

Hit "Contacts" option in the left panel and then you can see the detailed contents in the right panel. Go through them to find your target files ASAP, then mark the contacts you want to restore one by one.

Usually, if you lost data from iphone, I think you can have a look at your iTunes or iCloud backup.

And if you did not back up the data before losing them, the data recovery programs can also
be a good choice. Recover deleted contacts iphone.

According to what you said, if you have not backed up your iPhone before jailbreak and you have never synced contacts to iTunes/iCloud, you cannot use backup to restore after data loss. One solution you can try is to FREE scan, preview and check your lost contacts using an iPhone data recovery Windows or Mac tool. If you are sure that they are recoverable, get the job done!
