Edit- You can't start it if the battery is depleted. Did you recharge it since it died?

Edit- Describe precisely "jump start" From what? To what?

What does the battery voltage read? What does the battery voltage read when you push the starter button?

If you are jumpering from a car battery the question is whether jumping to your battery provides enough power to spin the starter.

With a good external battery you could just disconnect your battery from the system and clamp to your battery cables. But if it doesn't start this would leave some uncertainty about the quality of the clamping connection.

We want to know if power is getting thru the starter relay. But again, since the bike died while running, a failing starter relay CANNOT cause that symptom..... so we go back to battery that isn't getting charged while the bike is running as the most likely cause of the problem.

Bad or badly discharged battery. Typical car is about 12.5 before cranking but with ignition on and about 10V while cranking.
Not sure what a bike should be but I guarantee 6V isn't going to do the job.

(hope you can read thru the site issues)
