JoJo is not the name of a person. It is instead the nickname for each main character dreived from the first two letters of the first and last names, i.e. Jonathan Joestar and Jotaro Kujo. The only exception is Giorno Giovanni, which is really GioGio, but sounds the same as JoJo.
"Captain Tenile" mentioned in vol. 2 of the third series is a pun on the name of the duo Captain and Tenille, which has an official site at http://captainandtennille.net/index.shtml .
The toy the ape plays with in the third arc is known as a "Rubik's cube", a popular plastic puzzle from the 80's.
The image of the man on the tv in the third volume of the third arc is Marlon Brando's Don Corleone from the Godfather. While "Where's Michael?" should be a line from the film, it might also be a pun directed at the "What's Michael?"" anime/manga series, since one of the next images of a cat named Neko-Dora-Kun is a parody of Doraemon, another cat drawn like Michael in this version.
The comment the old lady in vol. 5 of the third series makes about "That time with John Lennon from the Beatles" regarding the use of a hotel is likely a reference to John and Yoko's music video for "Give Peace a Chance".
In Part V "Vento Aureo" Vol.52, Chapter "The Express Train Heading Towards Florence 2", Buccellati's gang are watching soccer in the TV, and Oozora Tsubasa (from "Captain Tsubasa") is seen in the TV's screen.
