I just bought front pads JL9 and Rear JL9...

Did I make the mistake of buying the JE5 for the front?

Please let me know, ASAP!

Thank you

Your car has either JL9 or JE5 but not both. I can't tell you if the pads are different or not, but if they offered you a choice, you need to select the ones for cars with JL9 (assuming the VIN on that label is yours and not just a cover from another car that ended up in your vehicle for some reason). Vendors will often "bulid" the car in their computer so they can select parts but even if the option of JL9 is entered, it doesn't mean that the pads are different, it could be other parts that are different. Ask them if the part numbers are the same for each and if so, it doesn't matter. If they are different, get the right ones.

By the shown RPO list it looks like it's the JL9 brakes. JE5 pads won't even fit in the caliphers.
