There are a few reasons jars break - and it happens to even the most experienced canners.
For me, the most common reason is the jar has a hairline crack in it that I didn't see when I examined them. Fill it up, put it in the waterbath, it gets hot and kerflooey. That hairline crack gives way under the heat and yucky canner.

This doesn't sound like your issue but I will admit I have broken a jar one time early on - entirely my fault. Just wasn't thinking. I put cold'ish food in the jar, dropped the jar into the boiling water and knew instantly what I had done - SMH. Cold jar + hot water and boy did I feel silly.

I'm sorry it happened, but truly it happens to most of us at least once.
