Finally got the daemon to start.
The problem was Python using the OpenSSL that is part of the base Jail (OpenSSL 1.0.2s-freebsd 28 May 2019).
The solution was to export some paths:

export CPATH=/usr/local/include; \
export LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib; \
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib;

(I'm going to document my other problems that were related in case anyone else wants to do things a difficult way)
My other problem was I was logged in as root but I wanted deluge installed under it's user, and I didn't want to login as that user or change it's shell (/sbin/nologin).
I needed to use "--preserve-env" when using sudo:

sudo -H -u deluge python3.7 -m pip install --no-cache-dir --user --upgrade pip; \
sudo --preserve-env -H -u deluge python3.7 -m pip install --no-cache-dir --user --upgrade deluge;

"--no-cache-dir" is probably not necessary if it is done correctly the first time.
I should have used "--preserve-env=list" instead but is was working and I was done learning.
