Sounds like the brake booster could be the issue. I would remove the vacuum line to it and re attempt to start the engine.

Do the brake lights come on when pushing on the pedal?
I would also do voltage drop test from the engine to the jump ground point this will check the engine main ground cable this are common to corrode and cause a no start.
If that test ok I would check the starter motor I have replaced several of these.
