Jira Software only implements Epic -> Task -> Sub-task.
You can get more layers with Portfolio for Jira, Jira Align or Structure for Jira. There's some other stuff you might look at, but those are the only three fully intended to create more layers over Epic
If you do that, please do not rename "Epic". This breaks some stuff in Jira in subtle ways that you won't spot until it's got quite bad.
This is likely to change soon, but at the moment, it causes too many problems.
You will need a tool, such as Portfolio for Jira, to create a higher level. Portfolio will give you the ability to create Initiatives, which can roll up Epics. Themes can also be used to roll up Initiatives.
I believe Big PIcture will provide you with Programs, that are similar to Initiatives.
