Just because your accessories are working does not mean that the battery can still have a bad connection enough for the accessories to work but not enough to crank over vehicle. Remove battery terminals and clean then reinstall.

do agree with @firebird, take off terminals and clean them in the ring that fits over the terminals, if that doesn't solve you're problem take the battery for a load test. if you jump and it starts its only that two things that could be the problem
