Sarah Jane and Jo Grant-Jones didn't get to voice their disappointment with being completely dumped for so many years until NuWho and SJA.
It's a bit inaccurate to say Jo was "dumped" since she chose to stop travelling with the Doctor. I think her main issue was that the Doctor never checked in on her in all the years since.
Oh, absolutely, looking at it rationally, she left the Doctor, but, yea, he didn't leave a number, and never visited again, makes you feel really inadequate, compared to Rose and then Sarah Jane (with her three NuWho Doctor Adventures), and now Amy/River. *Of course, any Classic Companion could claim this "Abandonment", and that was kinda the point, it didn't really register until NuWho.
I feel like I remember Eleven telling Jo Grant that he visited all of the former companions, even if they didn't know he was doing so, in the Sara Jane Adventures episode he guest starred in?

The implication being that Ten(nant!) visited every one of them in those last minutes of "The End of Time" and we only were privy to the companions from nuWho at the time.

Jo got to voice her frustration, and Eleven pointed out that he had checked up on her, she just didn't know it.

EDIT: He did! Scan forward to about 6:30:
