- An employee serving in the National Guard or Reserve, or the spouse of a Guard or Reserve member, may nominate individual supervisors and bosses for support provided directly to the nominating Service member and his or her family.
- White was nominated by Dan Jaquint who is Zebra’s Chief of Staff for its Enterprise Mobile Computing business as well as a Colonel in the U.S. Army Reserve.
- Some of Colonel Jaquint’s recent assignments, while an Enterprise Mobile Computing employee, include:
- Sr. Military Advisor Afghan National Police Counter-IED Directorate (NATO Mission Kabul, Afghanistan)
- Commander, 1st Battalion, 383rd Regiment (Des Moines, Iowa)
- Chief of Staff, 85th Support Command (Arlington Heights, Ill.)
- COL Jaquint’s current assignment is as the G3 (Operations Officer) for the 85th Support Command (Arlington Heights, Ill.)
- ESGR was established in 1972 to promote cooperation and understanding between Reserve Component Service members and their civilian employers. It fosters a culture in which all employers support and value the employment and military service of members of the National Guard and Reserve in the United States.

“Readiness is job one for our nation’s Army. America’s Army Reserve Soldiers, who are skilled and educated in more than 148 different career fields from doctors, engineers, and scientists, are only able to maintain that level of success and meet their readiness requirements because of employers like Mr. Joseph White and Zebra Technologies. Being a Soldier is not an easy job, and being an Army Reserve Soldier, like Col. Daniel Jaquint, brings challenges such as balancing a civilian career with military duties and family life. We depend on and deeply appreciate individuals like Mr. White who understand the value of service that our Soldiers perform.”
Dan Jaquint, Chief of Staff, Enterprise Mobile Computing, Zebra Technologies
“Zebra and Joe White have provided me with unwavering support and the autonomy and flexibility to meet my military obligations as a member of the U.S. Army Reserve. There is no question in my mind that my service in the Army Reserve has added to my civilian capabilities and vice versa. I am fortunate to be able to work in an organization comprised of individuals with such character.”
