While static pages hosted on do not carry the same problems as
GitHub itself (non-free JS), you'd be encouraging users to use GitHub to
do so.

A further consideration is how the static site with Jekyll is published:
through a build outside of the user's control.  It is SaaSS.[0]

Any host that allows the user to upload their own website in their
entirety---and have full control over that website---would be fine to
avoid such an SaaSS issue.  That's your traditional web host, provided
that you can use it without running non-free software (mainly JS) to
register an account and upload.
