From your description, it kind of sounds like all of the things you mentioned in your first sentence.
How does he show these insecurities? Does he verbalize - in a calm way? Or are they verbalized in anger? Does he do more than that - sulk, pout, shout, stomp, generally lose his cool? Is he passive aggressive with you?
The thing is, he will be the one who has to learn how to rein in his insecurity and anger and jealousy. If he has serious anger issues or insecurity issues, then he should consider getting some professional help for that - anger management or individual counseling.
The only thing you can do is be a trustworthy and self-confident individual who doesn't let it get under your skin, and encourage him to seek help. That is, unless he is verging on to or is outright an abusive individual to you, and then I recommend people come up with a plan of action to get out.
