How do I search for for issues with a specific user mention?

I'd like to have a search filter so see all the issues where I have been mentioned so I am sure to respond to their comment. I imagine there's a way to do this, but I am not knowledgeable about search functions.

There is an open ticket for the functionality. Kindly readcomments for the ticket, maybe some of them will give you ideas on what you can do in Jira at the present time.

  You can use the following JQL to find issues where someone has been mentioned. 

(summary ~ "username" OR description ~ "username"  OR comment ~ "username") 

Just change the username to the username of the individual you are looking for.
