Hi Robert,
The attached jpg. is what I get when I use that exact snippet (minus the font override) within frescobaldi, notice how there is no notehead.
Can you send me what the output it loads for you?
\version "2.22.0"
\paper {
  #(define fonts
      #:music "lilyjazz"
  \drummode {
    \override = #'cross

Hi Calvin,

I just noticed that your snippet works perfectly if I comment out the line
\override NoteHead.font-name = "emmentaler”

So, it seems to me that the lilyjazz font does in fact support the cross-style for whole notes. Maybe there’s some other issue in your score?
