It is possible, but it is soldered onto the logic board. You have to remove the old one using heat, pulling it away from the board, and being careful not to move any resistors or capacitors nearby. Then you have to get another one to fit (I take them from dead boards, can't seem to find any new ones) and solder it on.

Before you go down that path see if this tool doesn't fix things here: GripStick. Here's the tool in action - vid: GripStick: Tool to Remove Broken Headphone Plug Stuck in Audio Jack of iPhone, Android Phone, Tablet

We bought a few of them and they do work!
