How do I reattach the 3.5 mm jack to this PCB? Answered

This is a PCB from a watch Walkie Talkie. I was a little rough trying to get it out of the case and broke the connection. it doesn't look like I did any damage but I'm not sure how to fix it. This is probably a common issue but after searching I'm not finding anything its probably because I don't know they right terminology to search for. There is an orange tape on the bottom on the legs coming off of the 3.5 mm jack, What is that for? any help would be greatly appreciated and I know this may be a beginner question but that is what I am so go easy on me.

Looks like it's a surface mount component so if the legs haevn't broken off the part just solder it back down.

Well if the leg of the audio jack is still visible and not completely broken then you can solder it back on. About the tape are you sure its a tape if you are then its just for insulation and no other purposes. If you don't know what a solder is then its a tool used to connect metal piece in a circuit. Hope this helps
