Search for "assignee = <person who has left> and issue is open" (Generally, you probably don't want to reassign ended issues, it's better for your historical view to leave the gone person on closed stuff).

Once you have the list, use "bulk edit" from the issue navigator's option menu, and you'll be able to mass-update the assignee

Thank you.  The inactive user is not showing up after assignee =    Do you know how to search for an inactive user?

Ah, yes, you need to use their raw username - it won't autocomplete or suggest anything.  If, for example, you removed me from our Jira, you would have to type out "assignee = nbrough" in full.  

Awesome, that got it!  thanks so much!

Sorry, I should have mentioned that in my first response!  I keep forgetting it!

Glad you got there though.
