Push bike, put in second gear with everything on, and let out clutch. If that doesn't work, I can come help tomorrow.

i'm glad you have help and i don't mean to come across as an but you need to learn how to push start your own bike. doing so now will save your in the future. it's not a hard thing to do if you know how.

be careful jumping a bike,
it would be smarter [in the future] if you just push started it,
you said your in a parking lot, run the bike against the speed bump and dump the clutch in 2nd or 3rd. once you get the hang of it you'll be able to repeat the process.

You said you were in a parking lot, did you look for the slanted driveways that 18-wheelers use to load shipments? these are perfect areas to bump jump the bike, as well as speed bumps like I mentioned earlier.

Jumping bikes can cause the acid to leak from the battery, with the charging system or other erratic unforeseen mishaps like frying the electronics compounding your problem.

For instance, the last time I jumped my bike, it turned on and idled but when I started riding the speedo started randomly jumping numbers from 0-200,20,40,90,0,5,55,99 etc. then eventually died while I was in motion

so yeah, can go crazy when you jump the bike just for future knowledge.
