Is it possible to add a quick filter to a board to see issues by a user name?

I would like to add a quick filter to my kanban boards that will allow users to see only the issues that are assigned to a specific user that is not them.

You could define a quick filter for "assignee = x", but I'd start with "assignee != currentUSer()" - that will give them a way to hide their own issues and not have a hard-coded user in it.

How would I define a quick filter "assignee = x" I have some boards with several users and the team lead would like to be able to have a quick overview of what issues are assigned per user. 

Go to quick filters and add a new one.  The JQL really will be something like "assignee = nic" or "assignee = Stella"
