AC compressor not turning on after someone jump started off the battery. So I suspect an electrical problem.

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!
If the compressor clutch relay is clicking when you turn the a/c on then the problem has to be a loss of power to the load side of the relay, an open circuit between the relay and the compressor, or a failed clutch coil.
Have you checked fuses; do you have one terminal at the relay with power all the time?
Have you checked for power at the clutch connector with the engine running and a/c turned on?
