When you are able to jump start, that indicates a problem with the battery.
Some batteries can show a full charge but when the starter is being cranked, the voltage would drop.
Attach a voltmeter to the battery and while ignition is turned to START, note if the battery voltage level drops below 10 V. If yes, the battery is bad.
