I have been desperate for an easy tutorial that shows how jQuery/AJAX pulls a query from a ColdFusion CFC and displays it on the HTML calling page. I tried following this ben_tutorial but it is too complex for me. There is also a another tutorial, but I do not want to install a plugin. Where should I be looking? I am googling "jquery ajax coldfusion"

Would have commented, but apparently I can't yet, so I'll post here.
Put simply, Jason proposes some good sights, however, somthing to note, those tuts include older versions of jQuery and alot has changed. This sight also has a great walk through on setting up jQuery with Coldfusion, however, it to runs on out dated technology as well.
My suggestion would be to use these tuts along side the jQuery and Coldfusion docs to determine the more "up-to-date" mark ups and best practices. Good luck on your en devours!
