If you are "envious", it simply gives the impression that you want whatever it is the other person has.

If you are "jealous", it gives the impression that not only do you want what the other person has, but you also resent the fact that the other person has it instead of you.

In other words, you would rather deprive the other person of it so you could enjoy it personally instead (whatever "it" may be such as fame, a particular girlfriend, a nice car, a nice house, etc.).
