Jira Ops is tied to incident management. It's a central working area for issues. Basically a hot desk for live triaging and collaboration.
Jira Service Desk has a more robust end user service request system that ties in with confluence for knowledge base articles and is useful for Help Desks of any kind.
I don't see Jira Service Desk going away.
In some ways Jira Ops is filling the gap of some functionality that HipChat / Stride had and adds upon that.
Gregory hit the nail on the head with his response above.
Jira Service Desk is built for IT and Customer Support teams to help users get the information they need through a customer portal and support requests...and definitely not going away :)
Jira Ops is built for incident response teams to collaborate during major incidents where you quickly need to get the right stakeholders working together on a resolution. It's also integrated out of the box with incident tools like OpsGenie, PagerDuty, Statuspage, and Slack to create a complete incident timeline from first alert through to resolution. The timeline is useful for stakeholders to get up to speed without scrolling through a chat room and also for postmortems. Coming soon you'll see tighter integrations between the two like tying Jira Service Desk tickets to a Jira Ops incident.
