I tagged Chris since he was the maintainer but I welcome any and all input!
The problem is solved. I downloaded the zip into /etc/openhab instead of /usr/openhab. I’m new to this and I’m not sure if I’m supposed to have OpenHab files in those two locations or I messed things up when I was installing OH2 and then OH1 (although I reformatted and started with a fresh SD moving to Raspian Jessie) but it’s in the right location now.
Thanks @sihui for the link to the other thread that was the piece to the puzzle!
