  {jj, kk},
  {{jj, 2, "Select j"}, 1, 11},
  {{kk, 2, "Select k"}, 1, 11},
  LabelStyle -> {Bold, Medium}

In the example above the fonts of the labels "Select j" and "Select k" are, as expected, set to bold and medium size.

Question: Is there a way to set the labelstyle for each variable individually?

You can use Style for the labels:

Manipulate[{jj, kk},
 {{jj, 2, Style["Select j", Bold, Larger]}, 1, 11},
 {{kk, 2, "Select k"}, 1, 11}]
