How to Nip Whining in the Bud

Question

Hello, my 3-year-old whines quite a bit. Most of the times he jumps up and down when asking for something. He whines more when he doesn’t get what he wants, is sick, tired, etc. We tell him we’ll answer him when he asks in a normal voice. I’ve modeled the right way and wrong way of how to talk without whining. He still continues to whine. Any suggestions on what I can do?
