You have a bad shift interlock cable. They are notorious for failing on these Jeeps.
The shift interlock cable is what alows you to remove the key on park, but also wont allow it out of park unless you have the key "on" and brakes are depressed.
Replacing your shift interlock cable should take care of this problem.
I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any more questions!
