Runtime Error - Bootstrap's JavaScript requires jQuery

Can someone tell me what this error means and how to resolve? I have a C# ASPX application that is throwing this error.  

Unhandled exception at line 8, column 3 in http://localhost:27337/Scripts/bootstrap.js

0x800a139e - Microsoft JScript runtime error: Bootstrap's JavaScript requires jQuery
if (typeof jQuery === 'undefined') {
  throw new Error('Bootstrap\'s JavaScript requires jQuery')

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You need to make sure the jQuery library is included in your page's JavaScript files BEFORE you include the Bootstrap.js file. Like this:

    <script src="../jquery-1.11.1.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <script src="../bootstrap.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

Open in new window

Obviously you'll want to update your src parameter to properly reflect the appropriate location for each file.
