I had the same issue a few years back. I cut the rotted jamb off at about 16” from the bottom. I replaced that section with a piece of PVC jamb. I had to machine it to size. Then I used something similar to Bondo as described above but it was made for wood. It adheres to wood like you wouldn’t believe. Anyways, I used that to cover the seam. After it hardened I sanded it smooth. You can tell it is spliced and the PVS will last forever, even if sitting in water. I purchased an oscillating saw for this project and have found dozens of uses for it since. The oscillating saw was the perfect way to cut out just what i needed to, including nails.
