The high pressure fuel pump used in the 2014 GC is a Bosch CP4.2, an aluminum body pump that has a well documented history of catastrophic failure on the same diesel fuel that the prior generation HPFP, the Bosch CP3.2, a steel body pump, runs on without failure.
The issue is so prevalent in the VW Jetta that one owner invented a device that limits the damage done to the rest of the fuel system when the HPFP fails, so the repair expense is contained to just the replacement HPFP, not the entire fuel system.
Your dealer is doing you a disservice by using color as proof of contaminated diesel fuel. If there is any way possible, please get a sample of fuel, in a clean container, even if you have to ask a friend who knows how to get the sample. It could literally save you multiple thousands of dollars in repairs. Your insurance company may well want a sample also, but for your own protection, get a sample if you can.
After you get your fuel sample, call Chrysler back, not the dealership and let them know you're having the fuel tested and you want a copy of their fuel lab analysis for comparison. Don't let them redirect you to the dealer, let them know that Chrysler is providing warranty, not the dealer and without a written lab analysis from Chrysler, there is no legitimate proof of fuel contamination.
If they won't provide it, ask to speak with their supervisor. You can do this calmly and without being combative. Keep a written log of who you call, by name and date and what was said.
I'd suggest asking your insurance company to request a writen copy of the fuel analysis from Chrysler as well. If you let Chrysler slide on this, they will take the path of least resistance. You will need the fuel lab report that you send in yourself in case your insurance company either won't cover this kind of problem or won't cover contaminated fuel. Either way, you have a 50/50 chance of coming out ahead if you can prove good fuel.

The issue I am having is that the dealer is blaming the fuel 3 weeks after trying to fix the jeep. I spoke to the gas station owner and he offered to get a diesel sample tested but also told me that he has had 4 deliveries of fuel since my jeep has been in the shop. The dealer is only going by a visual inspection of diesel claiming it is not the right color and has a blue tint to it .
