You may not be getting enough juice from the donor battery. Let the vehicle idle for a bit and let it charge the jeep battery. It's possible the jeep battery has an internal dead short in it now too. If the lights stop as soon as you remove the jumper cable, get a new battery. If it has an alarm..........can't help you from here.
