The DeWalt brand cordless jigsaw has an air blower built in.

As one would expect, it tends to get clogged from time to time. Also as expected, it’s effectiveness depends upon the characteristics of what you’re cutting and how much debris it makes and the size of it (i.e. how course the teeth are on the blade etc.)

It helps sometimes, but not a total solution by any stretch of the imagination.

One would loose the cordless aspect of course, but one solution would be to make a “jig” to attach a compressor hose to the saw to continuously blow away the debris.
