Having only ever seen the original TV series and the movie, I'm left wondering a lot about the Verse of Firefly/Serenity.

Namely, about the awesome woman who made Jayne his hat.

Do we ever get to meet Jayne's mom in the comics, or any other extended canon?

No, we've not yet seen Jayne's mother in any of the extended material. There's a mention of her in "The Message" when we see the awesome hat that she's made Jayne.

JAYNE : Haw haw. It's from my mother..."My dear boy. I hope you are well and that you get this soon in your travels." Travels..."Thank you for the credits you forwarded, they have helped as Matty is still sick with the Damp-lung. I made you the enclosed" --Ooh! Enclosed!
He reaches in and pulls out a woolly knitted hat with earflaps and a pom pom. He is clearly moved. He puts it on, continues reading.
"enclosed to keep you warm in your travels. Hope to hear from you soon, love, your mother."

He closes the letter, proudly adjusting his hat.

Jayne Hat

There's also a further mention in the comic "Serenity : Better Days : Part 2" where we learn (in Jayne's fantasy story) that her name is Radiant Cobb.

I sincerely hope Wash made good on his namesa-wait, Wash?! Holy crap. I thought all the Firefly comics took place after Serenity...man I've got to read some of those. –  Zibbobz Apr 18 at 17:27
    
@Zibbobz - That was from a flashback IIRC –  System Down Apr 18 at 17:36

@Zibbobz - Serenity Better days is a three-shot that sits between Firefly and Serenity. –  Richard Apr 18 at 17:36

@SystemDown - Each of the crew tell stories about their plans for the future. Jayne plans to be the captain of a ship called the "Radiant Cobb" –  Richard Apr 18 at 17:37
    
@Richard - Ah true. Need to reread my Firefly books anyway. Thanks! –  System Down Apr 18 at 17:39
