It could be, but there would be one letter missing
Explanation:
J Dto Esc
could stand for Jefe del Departamento Escolar. However, you should remember that most of the typing in military areas in Argentina are done by soldiers during their military service ("furrieles") so there could be a typing mistake, since most of them are not precisely good typists. Anything that I could put would just be a guess.
J Dto Ec could stand for Jefe del Departamento de la Escuela de Comunicaciones (military context) or Escuela de Comercio (non-military context), but I have no reason to say that this is the right answer. Sorry...
