JGit is the Java implementation of Git. It is a library, that also can be used in your own applications. It also provides some sort of CLI operations.
EGit on the other side is the Eclipse team provider plugin for Git, which uses JGit as Git implementation. Simplified you could say EGit is the UI part, and JGit the background part.
JGit doesn't depend on EGit, but EGit does depend on JGit.
