Need jQuery onClick To Change Button Text and Background-Color

I am on Wordpress 4.9.8 and WooCommerce 3.5.4.

I am trying to get a button using jquery to change background color and change the text in the button onClick.  I have come up with this code but when I try to save it I get an error.  

JavaScript error: ReferenceError: jQuery is not defined on line 6

Open in new window

this is line 6
e.preventDefault();

Open in new window


<script type="text/javascript">

jQuery(function() {
	jQuery('#result').text(listCookies);
	jQuery('#cook').click(function(e) {
		e.preventDefault();
		document.cookie = "wantmembership=1; path=/";
              jQuery(this).css('background-color','green');
              jQuery(this).text("I Have Membership");
		jQuery('#result').text(listCookies);
	});
	
	
});

</script>

Open in new window


I am very new to jQuery.

Please tell me how to fix this code to change the background-color and the text both.

Thanks,

The 'jQuery is not defined' error usually means that you haven't loaded the jQuery library. Check the source of your page to make sure you're referencing a value jQuery libray.
