Hi, the best way to define your PATH environment variable is by
sourcing the corresponding profile script in ~/.xinitrc.

For example you may put this line in your ~/.xinitrc:

. ~/.config/fish/profile
before exec gnome-session.

Or (if your profile script is a bash profile):
. ~/.profile

Note that in order to be able to *source* a profile script (defining
between the other things the PATH), the .xinitrc need to be written in
the same profile script language, for example it has to be a bash

Not sure about how does JDS work though, also not sure that was the
question you was asking for, maybe you meant to ask instead "how can I
execute a certain script every time gnome starts?".

HTH, regards.
