The thing to do to get it unjammed now is to remove the transfer shifter biushing and then replace it. Remove the cover, then the boot, then depress and rotate the retaining ring (can be done with needle nose pliers inserted nose-down). Then pull out the black rubber ring, wipe it off, then reinstall everything. Get the transfer case into some gear and get back home. When you get back home buy a new transfer case bushing from somebody like Suzuki John on Ebay. The new bushing will fix the problem.

There is a pin that goes through the shifter that hold it in place, along with a spring just inside where the end of the shifting lever is, that makes the lever "return" after you pull it back to shift. These springs can break and bind up. Take a look at both.

Check the oil level in the shift on the fly (sotf) part of the axle thats the left of the front one - it holds about 1 pint of gear oil and gets missed at service time .

It's either related to your clutch (is it cable operated or hydraulic?) being out of adjustment or low fluid pressure, or you have a loose linkage.
I would investigate these 2 issues, before looking at the gearbox.
Also, have your vehicle checked for diagnostic codes in case it is an electrical issue.
