Try a battery charge or jump start yet.

Yes we have tried both, took the battery out and charged it 100% and had it tested, tested good. We have also tried to jump start it but still nothing.

You could try to take your jumper cables and run one or both from the neg. Terminal to the engine block or better yet on the starter itself and try to start it. Could try to by pass the starter relay somehow.
