When the problem is ongoing, the starter motor won't crank, so you jump it? I'd have to be sure the battery has a full charge. Also, check the charging system.

When problem is ongoing, check the circuits at the starter motor, you need voltage and ground. Any testing at the starter make sure tranny is in park or neutral and the parking brake is set.

It could be a loose connection, somewhere?
