I have read an Upwork page about JSS, feedback and the state of a contract. And I discover that contracts left with no activity have adverse effect on the JSS as well as completed jobs with no feedback from the client.
Contracts that close without feedback, as well as idle contracts, have no effect on your JSS provided money was (at some point) paid, and you don't have a super-high percentage of such contracts (you don't)
The best time to get a client to close a contract is just after the work was done, but if they don't, you can leave them and then just close one every once in a while between contracts that ended with feedback.
It is a non-issue.
It's a pattern of "No Feedback," and I feel that they've really eased up on that rule. I closed three in a row a couple months ago. Normally, that would at least hit me by a point but it didn't at all. I closed 5 in a row last year and it was ooooof no bueno but it seems some time in the last year they've lessened the hit you take.
Still, in an excess of caution, I would advise you close the Petra way, not the Jennifer way this time.
Since you don't have hundreds of contracts under you belt yet, you might not have enough good contracts to nullify any negative JSS effect that closing a slew of them at once could have on your account.
