How to Stop Apex Scheduled jobs in Salesforce

System.abortJob(Id) can do this. Simply pass in the Id of the AsyncApexJob for the job in question.

You’ll note the docs specifically mention System.schedule results can be passed in, which would represent the scheduled job id; this same value can be obtained from the AsyncApexJob table.

Its possible using the below piece of code:

-> Go to developer console> Debug (from top menu)> Open Execute Anonymous Window.

for ( AsyncApexJob aJob : [ Select id ,Status, ApexClass.Name
from AsyncApexJob where Status!='Aborted'
and Status!='Completed' ] ){
