Quedar can mean two different things. When quedar is reflexive (quedarse), it means to remain or stay. When not reflexive, it means to be left/to have left. In this context, the sentence means that this person was left with Jose. You can also use this verb to say things like "I only have 5 wuro left" or "We only have a few weeks of summer left"

"Quedar con alguien" in that context means "to meet somebody".
