In the simplest terms, phase noise describes the stability of an oscillator in the Frequency Domain while jitter describes stability in the Time Domain.

Step 2: When plotting each spectral density point at varied frequency intervals of your choosing (In this case every 1Hz), you're left with a graph that looks like this:

Now focus only on the upper sideband of the graph from fstart to fstop called the "Single Side Band". Check out the illustration below:
