I don't think you need to use resource quotas for this.  Create a userlist 
with only "jack" as a member, then exclude that userlist from from the exechost.

$ qconf -au jack only_jack
$ qconf -aattr exechost xuser_lists only_jack node9

This will keep new jobs from the users in that userset (e.g. "jack") from 
using the node.  Running jobs are unaffected.
