Try this :

$('select[name^="salesrep"] option[value="Bruce Jones"]').attr("selected","selected");

Just replace option[value="Bruce Jones"] by option[value=result[0]]

And before selecting a new option, you might want to “unselect” the previous :

$('select[name^="salesrep"] option:selected').attr("selected",null);

Edit: Using jQuery Mobile, this link may provide a good solution : jquery mobile – set select/option values
