Yes, JOSM has the funtionality! First download the data for the area you
want. JOSM has a search function[1] by pressing Control-F. "user:" will
find all objects which were last edited by that username (e.g.
"user:rorym" will find all objects last touched by rorym).

The TODO list plugin[2] could be helpful here. Once the objects are
selected, you can add them to do the todo list, and work through them
one by one to verify each one is OK.

The JOSM validator[3] is good to run as well (Shift-V), it can find
common errors.

Hope that helps
