Starter won't engage

2004 sahara , automatic transmission turn key to start and it might start fine or starter starts to engage and just drops out and does nothing but clicks , if you keep engaging switch it most of the time will finally start ,but I can get under and jump the starter and it really acts weird at that point because it will turn over fine but will not make engine run until wife holds key over to start why I have it engaged. So to sum up my thoughts , there seems to be no power at the ignition when starter won't engage from switch. Must be a power feeder power wire or ignition switch. Anyone ever had this problem , believe me I have been through all the easy things , have been a thirty year mechanics.
