When our sun finally ceases to exist as a red giant, 7 billion years from now, the outer layer of the star will get blown off in huge clouds of gas and dust known as planetary nebulae, leaving behind a very dense core, that cools down to form a white dwarf (approx.. 6000kms in radius). Since the sun no longer exists to exert its gravitational pull, I wonder what would be Jupiter's new orbit in the solar system?

Since the sun no longer exists to exert it's gravitational pull
However, the white dwarf exists, hence Jupiter will still be in orbit around the sun in it's white dwarf phase, unless it got absorbed in the red giant phase or blown away when the outer layer is blown away. As such orbits are always elliptical, Jupiters orbit will still be elliptical.
