The spot changes significantly over time and has been shown to absorb/merge with other smaller storms

It's atmosphere is composed mainly of hydrogen and helium, with small amounts of methane. The atmosphere is also very deep, perhaps even comprising the whole planet itself.
I highly doubt there is any thing living on the surface.
Just my opinion though. I am not one to really say it's completely impossible however it is unlikely.
After all who's to say we can't have silica based life forms that breath methane or some other types of toxic gas. Man thinks he knows soo much, but I think in time he will see just how little he thought he understood!

you should have posted this in skunk works.
By its definition Skunk works is the 'speculative theory' forum and this theory sure is speculative.
my opinion? no there are no aliens living in the red spot on Jupiter.

OK let's ponder.
I think that Jupiter's Red Spot contains intelligent Aliens, let's check it out:
Great Red Spot
Age: anticyclonic storm has lasted for at least 179 years and possibly as long as 344 years or more.
Size: The spot is large enough to contain two or three planets the size of Earth.
WTF: Infrared data have long indicated that the Great Red Spot is colder (and thus, higher in altitude) than most of the other clouds on the planet.
WTF: 8 km above the surrounding clouds.
I believe Aliens are living in Jupiter's Red Spot. It is double the size of earth, enough space to live, hidden from outside worlds.
The size of the spot in comparison to earth:
"Red Spot Jr." > smaller spaceship:

In the above picture "Red Spot Jr." enters The Great Red Spot and leaves from the other end. I believe "Red Spot Jr" is gathering resources, or maybe just a smaller spaceship examining Jupiter.
Maybe it is a spaceship which came to Jupiter not so long ago (179 - 344 years ago). Maybe they are taking resources, or maybe looking for a place to live, or just creating a post to conquer the rest of the universe, who knows.
Ponder through that for a while.
Thanks for your time
