The jpg image is rasterized and in its own layer. I can rotate it, shear it, transform it... But the perspective warp will NOT apply! What am I missing?

 

Using current Adobe Illustrator 2020

Draw a rectangle the same porportions as the image. Distort it and then apply it as an envelope on the image.

Great and concise answer, but just to note that this only works on an embedded image, and not on a linked one (the latter being the default way of bringing raster images into Illustrator).
