Will a loose battery wire cause a battery to go dead?

No. A loose battery connector will cause problems drawing power from the battery to start the vehicle, and it may present a bit of a problem charging it (but that is not likely because the charging current is low compared to the starting current). If you have a loose connector and the battery goes dead, clean and tighten your battery terminals and start making some checks. The loose connector will not cause your battery to go dead.

I was trying to jump start another vehicle when I shut off my vehicle. There was no electrical power to my vehicle when I tried to start it again. What could be the cause?

A quickie guess would be a loose battery terminal on your car. There may be some other reasons for your vehicles "deadness" when you went to start again, but if you connected your jumper cables correctly, the first place most folks would look would be your battery terminals. Is one loose or dirty/corroded between the terminal and the battery post? Pull 'em, clean 'em and reattach them to see what happens.
