How would you query JIRA for tickets a person is involved in (in any fashion: comment, assignee, edited, watching, etc.)?

I would like to have a search for any ticket that a particular person (e.g., myself or someone on my team) has interacted with...whether it was assigned to them at one point (perhaps not presently), they edited some field in it, they are watching it, they entered  a comment on it, or were mentioned on it, etc.

creator = username OR reporter = username OR assignee = username OR assignee was username

There is nothing for issue updated by and commented by as of now.
