Yes! Another area to check is the wiring at the Starter Solenoid and to the Starter itself. You don't mention how many miles are on your vehicle. Many Starters fail at High Mileage when most of the driving has been Short Haul. The Starter is typically good to somewhere over 100K Miles for normal driving usage. Short Haul, many starts, reduces overall life of the Starter. Winter driving where Salt is used on the roads can cause corrosion on these critical connections too. Carefully Inspect each termination from Battery to the Starter and Ground cable connections too. Not to mention the Starter Mounting Bolts.

The fuel filter is under the vehicle, on the drivers side, close to the area under the drivers seat along the inner side of the frame.

Are you sure you have all your cables connected properly? Jumping the solenoid to the battery says the battery and starter is working well but the juice is not getting to the starter itself. Recheck all the connectors and wires to the starter. One may have been missed. If all checks out you could have a bad ignition. You may also have a chip in your ignition key. They do go bad from time to time. You may want to take it to the dealership for a quick test and possible replacement. One of those should be the fix. Good luck.
