If you find the same error then this is the best blog. You have found the reason and solution below steps

1) Include Main Jquery Library
This is the common issue to fix this issue first step is to check is the main library file is included in your code. IF you included it then check the path of the file, are you able to access it directly? Make sure your path does not give the 404 Erro. 404 Error means the file path that you use is not correct. You can use the CDN Link also
Just copy and paste the below code in your file if the main library not included

// Include Google's CDN
<script src="http//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.11.0/jquery.min.js"></script>

2) Cross-Browser Issue
If you are using the above CDN Link or any other CDN Link then make sure you use the same HTTP protocol. If your site is hosted with SSL means your domain name started with https then you use the same CDN path.

// If your domain start with HTTP then use this
<script src="http//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.11.0/jquery.min.js"></script>

//If your domain starts with HTTPS then use this

<script src="https//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.11.0/jquery.min.js"></script>
