Check your alternator and your battery.

When jumping, you need clean posts and clamps at your battery, water in the cells, and leave the donor car hooked up and revved up for a few minutes. You can also take your battery to be checked by a tech. After you get your car started you can drive straight to the battery charger and someone with the basic tools and a load tester. But a pocket knife used to get the crust off the post and the inside of the cable end has saved many a no start in my experience. Then you can go run all the tests you want with a tech. new cable ends are cheap
