Is this a 92 Jetta like you describe or a 02 Jetta TDI? If it's a 92 Jetta, I can almost guarantee the ignition switch is bad. Common failure. They're cheap, but require special tools and experience to remove.
Runs fine for how long? Is battery dead when car quits? If you jump it, will it immediately restart?
Inspect fusible links on top of battery housing. You will probably find some burning/overheating there.
Start checking your fuses, also look at your neutral safety switch relay that will keep the car from showing any life also if its a automatic make sure its completely in park, If the vehicle was stored outside a animal could have damaged wires in your starting system ...
It sounds like one or more fuses have blown. (Your car has fuses rather than circuit breakers.)
Open the driver's side door and look at the area near where the door hinges. There should be a panel that you can open on the side of the dashboard. Use your key or a screwdriver in the small slot to open the panel.
However, there is a yellow, plastic tool attached to the inside of the panel that will help you to remove and insert fuses.
See the following link for a "map" of the fuses. http://forums.tdiclub.com/showthread.php?t=106260
If you're car has been running fine, then suddenly won't start, the cause is frequently that the fuel pump cutoff has been tripped. Open your trunk, and look for a label for a fuel pump cutoff switch. Locate the switch, press it in, and see if the engine will start.
