Have you looked at using startd RANK setting and expression to
give these users a higher priority?  You could give a bonus to
particular job Owners, perhaps further limiting it to those jobs
for which some special flag is set.  For example, to give the
users adesmet and sample a higher priority if they add
"+HighPriority=TRUE" to their submit files:

# This gives adesmet and sample a boost of 100 in rank.
IsHighPriorityUser = (Owner == "adesmet" || Owner == "sample")
RANK = (($(IsHighPriorityUser) && Target.HighPriority) * 100)

This is a pretty simple solution; more complex ones are also
