SOURCE: 2002 VW Jetta won't start
Check the battery out put to see if it is at least 12.25 volts(may need to have it load checked).If the battery checks good,remove battery cables and clean them real shiney,also the battery terminals,and replace them back on the battery,WARNING,DO NOT DISCONNET THE BATTERY WITHOUT PLUGING A 12 VOLT POWER SOURSE INTO THE CIGARET LIGHTER PLUG,OR EQUAL.If you do not plug in a power sourse to the car,the computer will loose all it`s memory,and will have to go to the dealer to be reflashed.

It might be ignition switch , they do go bad a lot on this cars.
Try to turn key all the way to the limit and still give it some push when you try to start the engine.
If it starts , you need new ignition switch.

You need to charge your battery up more. Either get a battery charger or leave the jumper cables hooked up for a longer period of time.
Your battery was probably completely dead. You might even need a new battery...they really don't like to be completely drained.
