You can - you'd basically just create a python script that parses your HTML/CSS files and replaces strings with values from your YAML. However I wouldn't recommend that unless you're just using this as an opportunity to learn Python. If you want to standup a real site and you want to use python, I'd recommend a Python static site generator like Pelican or Nikola.

I tend to prefer static site generators for this kind of use case. I use Nikola, which is written in and based on Python. You should be able to pick whatever html5up template you like and turn it into a Nikola template, too.

I know you say you're comfortable with your workflow, but just wanted to throw out that if you're not dependent on Jekyll, and are simply looking for the best way to create a static site/blog from org-mode files, you could consider Nikola as an alternative. It has an excellent org-mode plugin which would likely solve your complication.
