The concept is not meaningful.  Only one job can be in the foreground
at a time.  Is this what you're looking for?
$ help wait
wait: wait [n]
    Wait for the specified process and report its termination status.  If
    N is not given, all currently active child processes are waited for,
    and the return code is zero.  N is a process ID; if it is not given,
    all child processes of the shell are waited for.
