You can't do that using JQL.


If you're not looking forward to use any custom plugins, you can achieve the result with the help of: 


  1. You'd need to create a new custom field with "User Picker" type, and call it, for instance "Initial Assignee".
  2. Using JIRA automation OR workflow post functions set "Initial Assignee" to a preferred user once issue is created.
  3. Then query by the custom field (Initial Assignee) using JQL.
