There should be a way to kill all child processes with a single command using process ID. I’ll look into this also.

You can kill JAWS by executing the taskkill command:
taskkill /IM "jfw.exe" /f
The problem with this approach is that you will also need to kill all of JAWS' child processes. When I have some time I'll go through task manager and see all of the different processes that JAWS has. You would use taskkill to kill them off one by one before restarting JAWS.
You also need to be running an elevated command prompt to execute taskkill.
If done successfully, here is what the output looks like:
Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.18362.175]
