In our branching strategy, depending on when a bug is fixed, it might require one, two or three merges. We don't want to close a bug until the fix is verified in all of the required branches.
One solution is to clone the Jira, one for each commit. Is that what most folks do, or am I missing a cleaner way to track this?
I think there are several different possibilities here. When you say "verified" do you mean tested? Or just merged to that branch...
Where is the list of branches that each fix must go through defined...? Is that a decision on an issue by issue basis? Or can that be inferred from the branch naming convention that we had talked about before?
A better solution than cloning in my opinion would be to use a subtask per branch. You could add a trigger to the subtask workflow, so that it automatically gets moved into the right state when merged, eg "Ready for test". Then QA know what's on their todo list.

As a project manager, I have discovered that different developers want to bring their previous branching method with them when they join the team. Some developers are used to performing individual wo...
