Not that I know of. Its either one or the other. You can have options on some sound devices for which headphone/speaker jacks are or aren't active but you can only have one default audio playback device at a time and thus everything gets routed through that device.

Once stereo jack is plugged the sound is routed through it, the sensor is giving signal to the sound driver to terminate internal speakers. The only way you can do is split it to a head set and another (external) speaker system.
Use this $2 splitter.
