Could be a weak battery if it clicks one to how long you hold it if its a solid one click i would swap out your battery with someone else's and try it, if thats not the case you have a newer jeep so there might be a issue with your ignition switch

Could be the fuel pump has taken a dump. Disconnect the fuel line at the engine and have someone crank it. If you see gas shooting out, it isn't the fuel pump. Lemme know if I can help further.

Car dies while driving, now it won't start sometimes

Could be a fuel pump that is going bad. Some times when fuel pumps go bad they cavitate and pump not just gas but also air. If you get too much air in the line and not enough gas the car won't start. Have a mechanic check your fuel line pressure.

Tell me this.... when you turn the key, do you hear a CLICK?? If so your starter is probably bad.
