I JUST got a jointer and I ran into a similar problem with rough cut lumber. I got significantly better results by taking a tiny bit off the face with a planer just to get everything a bit smoother, then running that same face through the jointer, then jointing the edges, then planing the other face.

This was on a 6 inch powermatic 50 with brand new knives and my outfeed and infeed tables and knives adjusted. Not gonna make any claims about my overall skill :)
