You mention you have OM3, so this is a multi-mode fiber optic cable that will run 10Gb up to 300 meters. Assuming you have the multi-mode optic since you are asking about a multi-mode jumper, then you are good unless your distance needs to go beyond 300 meters. OM4 and OM5 are rated at up to 550 meters at 10Gb. If by chance you have a single-mode optic, then you are going to need a completely different jumper cable type (OS2 instead of OM3).


The link below gives some details about multimode fiber types and provides a linked YouTube video going over those.
