If you'd like to add a new filed to the res.user in the original model; I think you don't need to add 

_name = "jdv.users"

So try to remove it from the 

user_profile.py & your views

also use res.users instead of jdv.users in the xml views:

<field name="model">jdv.users</field>
to be 

<field name="model">res.users</field>

Hope this will helps
