Firstly, you should upgrade to stretch, rather than Jessie.
That said, the following is, I believe, true for both versions.

The "lite" version doesn't include any GUI elements, so the $64,000 question is, what do you expect the touchscreen to actually do?

You can see if the touchscreen is actually recognized by looking through the boot messages (dmesg), and/or by using lsusb to show what devices are present. If it is present, then you will probably need additional software to work with it.
If you run the full version, with a GUI desktop, the GUI is doing all the heavy lifting required to make it work.

I have many different touchscreens, including an earlier model of this one. In many cases, they are running software I have written that talks directly to the framebuffer to display things, and code to read and interpret the touch events. Most of these are on the "lite" version.
