I don't know what is senator-jump, but i guess this function use a
simple read-string. To have completion you need a *-completing-read with a
collection as arg.

I think a better approach to enable a ido-completing-read is what DVC

| (defun dvc-completing-read (&rest args)
|   "Read a string in the minibuffer, with completion.
| Set `dvc-completing-read-function' to determine which function to use.
| See `completing-read' for a description of ARGS."
|   ;; Initialize dvc-completing-read-function on the first invocation of 
|   ;; This allows to enable ido-mode after loading DVC
|   (when (eq dvc-completing-read-function 'auto)
|     (setq dvc-completing-read-function (if (and (boundp 'ido-mode) ido-mode)
|                                            'ido-completing-read
|                                          'completing-read)))
|   (apply dvc-completing-read-function args))

Yes like read-string.

FYI you have also an anything implementation of completing-read that is
available in anything-config.el, it is called anything-comp-read.
