Sounds like a bad battery,, it can read 12 volts but not have enough current to run the car,, a good test is to leave the lights on for 10-15 minutes, then try to start the car, most batteries will be able to start the car if they are good. and you said you can jump the car, and keep it running so the alternator appears good

You need 4 things to make an engine run; fuel, air, spark, and compression. If you have all three of these items, then it gets into timing and fuel/air ratios. Since I don't know the exact symptoms or your problem, I will give you some troubleshooting guides based on easiest to hardest.
I am going to assume the engine was running great until the time it just died, which leads me to think it is going to be likely a fuel/spark problem.
If the engine cranks and just seems to not want to start at all, I think you should make sure you have fuel. You can use a couple shots of starting fluid to see if the engine pops when cranked. If it does, then it will probably be a fuel pump/fuse/relay. If it doesn't, then I would think it is spark related. If it is spark related it could be a number of things and you can post another question to get more direction, because it could be a number of different things.
You can check the air filter, but this would not cause a sudden stop condition.
As for compression, it could be a sudden break of a timing belt. This could also include a loss of spark if the computer requires an input from a camshaft sensor. If you break a timing belt, you will definitely be able to notice a different sound coming from the engine when you crank the engine.
These are the basics, but as always with the new electronics it could be something related to the computer.
