Although you request is not totally compliant with Scrum principles, it does make sense, actually.
JIRA PDF View Plugin can be a tool to generate these and other custom reports from JIRA issues. The plugin is shipped with a simple Burn Down Chart template, that you could utilize, either as is or as starting point for customization.
It takes the input list of issues and transforms the data to the agile report below (see PDF). Using this, all you have to do is setting up a filter that returns the issues for that given person and then export the result set.
(In case it is cumbersome to set up a separate filter for each project member, the plugin supports scripting! This allows you to implement any simple or complicated logic during rendering your PDF document.)
By definition in Scrum the velocity is a metric for the productivity of the team during a Sprint, it s not intented to monitor a single member work.
Same thing for the Burndown Chart. Using the Burn Down, the team can see if they are likely to acheive the Sprint Goal. If not, they can adapt and re-organized their work in order to make it.
What is exactly the need you have ?
I know the defeinitions given in Scrum, but that's not what we are using. We augmented it by introducing some practices for multi-project management.
Our team members work across several projects with different percentage over sprints. Some tasks can be performed only by some team members. This means that I need to monitor and limit amount of work assigned to each team member, other than the total amount of story points for a sprint.
In GreenHopper, it is not possible to put constraints on swimlanes, so I wanted to do it manually, by checking the amount of work assigned to a team member in a burndown chart.
It is odd that one of the main principles of scrum is people before processes yet each time there is a suggestion to improve process or add features to help people, this is mostly met by a stern defending of the process. I have seen this recurring on most suggestions to features. Odd. "By definition", "non compliant to SCRUM principles" and so forth.
