The fuel pump, crank sensor or a module could have failed. You could check for a strong blue spark at the plugs while cranking the engine. Also try starting fluid to see if it tries to start like that. If it tries, then the fuel pressure and volume need to be tested with a guage.

 

Thanks for your question and positive feedback,

Do all of the lights on the dash light up? or flicker?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
flicker
Expert:  nick replied 7 years ago.
I think your battery is so dead that even a jump start can't help. Do you know if you left a light on or anything? I have see dead cells in batterys, that make you think it is ok but under load it can't produce. I bet if you went and had your battery checked or even installed a new one that everything will be ok.
