Trivia

Why in the world, no Jigsaw manufacturers thought of doing the blade on the right or left side instead of in the middle ?!!! Don't they have engineers with focus group telling them that trying to use a jig saw within a big somewhat deep hole flush to a wall is mission impossible ?

Use a different type of saw, cut the hole prior to assembly or from the bottom, use a router with an offset base, etc.

Dang! if that is not the craziest idea I've ever heard.
So you have a hole on the left...hey I need a right hand bladed jigsaw.
I can see it now sales drop and the manufacturer goes bust because the righthand jigsaw is selling more than the left.
Crazy dude.

A little crazyness in life is just good for anybody !
Seriously, it was an opening my father tried to make in the roof between trust to put skylights.
He had to do holes in the 4 corners, go on the roof, mark the lines and cut it.
With a right or left hand Jigsaw you can cut flush. Yes, that would mean that you will cut always from the same side.

Did you know a reciprocating saw is basically what you need?

Didn't used to be impossible. Saws were available with rotating pistons, you can set the blade at 90 degrees to the footplate centerline and cut left/right at or near flush to an obstacle.
My cheapo isn't of this type, but it looks possible to put a right angle clamp onto the end for similar cutting effect.
