Questions about a quote

99 TJ six cylinder manual trans with 114k miles close to new everything engine wise.
I had a head gasket replaced about a month ago after my jeep overheated, i had the cylinder head magnafluxed and resurfaced at a machine shop. i replaced the usual fluids and had it running well untill a coulple days ago when it began a slow crank and rough idle situation as well as stalling when im braking on the road.
I had a family mechanic do the original work at my house and trust his work, but i took it to a garage shop to get another look at it since i've replaced as much as i can (TPS, IAC, fuel injector for cyl #1, and new plugs, wires and distributor cap). Even still i have this hard start, stumble and stall issue. No CEL either, the mechanic I took it to recently quoted $1500 for a "valve job" and basically to do the head work again.
is this a reasonable price?
should i be having these problems if the work was done right?
and will these solve my problem for sure or am i going to be wasting alot more money here?
Im not sure what to do, he said i have 0 compression in cyl 1, 50 in 2nd, and 75 in the third, but all the others are good. ANY ADVICE ON WHAT I SHOULD DO OR ANY ANSWERS TO MY QUESTIONS? IM AT A DEAD END AND CANT WASTE ANY MORE MONEY AND BRAIN POWER, I JUST WANT MY VEHICLE FIXED FOR GOOD.
