Welcome to our little community. Unfortunately 55 gallons is not big enough for both of these fish and I'm afraid aggression problems is something that you would expect if the fish haven't got enough room for themselves. The best advice I can give you is to rehome one of the fish, this is probably the only way you are going to subdue the aggression

Also keep in mind that a 55 will be too small for Oscar eventually. If thats the only tank you can have, best to find Oscar a better home. The smaller JD will fare better in the tank by himself.

First issue is 55g. That is too small for an adult Oscar. Forget tankmates. IF you had a 100+gallon tank you could possibly have another fish with Oscar. Cichlid compatibility is never guaranteed.
