If I had only taken a JPEG, and I tried to raise the exposure 3.4 stops as I did with the RAW file, I would have ended up with no usable image.

I would like to say that this discussion has been informative and each party has expressed their opinions in a professional manner.

However, I think the sort of statement above is what offends some.  I have taken your original JPEG (it is obviously your JPEG image) and made corrections in my image editor.  It may not be precisely as good as what you did with your raw file, but it is far from being "no usable image".  I have helped people correct their JPEGs on many occasions on these forums when they thought they were "lost".

Those who are not accustomed to working with JPEG files should be cautious about over-stating the difference between what can be achieved with raw files and JPEGs.

(And I once said I would never again participate in raw vs. JPEG discussions!)
