Changing Default Assignee

The person who was the original admin of our JIRA process has left the company.  However, whenever we now create new projects, the system continues to assign all new projects to this person, even though we have deactivated him, and now have deleted him.  Still, it assigns projects to him by default.  How do I change the default assignee to be me?  HELP!!!

Check to see who is the project lead, and also look at your components to see if they are configured to assign to the old user.
