FWIW I am in a similar boat. Apache has been my weapon of choice for a
long time, I have inherited a system where they prefer nginx. We are a
Debian shop, using Jessie (8) on production systems. I use the packages
from the nginx repositories rather than the Debian builds. 

deb jessie nginx

# nginx -V
nginx version: nginx/1.9.7
built by gcc 4.9.2 (Debian 4.9.2-10) 
built with OpenSSL 1.0.1k 8 Jan 2015

If that is of any help :)
