Is it possible to log off a session by commandline by username?

Last Modified: 2012-05-10
I have a new application running under terminal services on Windows Server 2008 64 bit. I'm experiencing random hangs, and am forced to log users out of their sessions periodically when they get stuck.  I'd like to create a method to allow them to logout of a stuck session.  Currently I can run

query session bjones  /server:SRV01

in order to get the session ID, then

logoff id /server:SRV01

Is there a way to skip the query step and logoff all users from a given server with a specific username?  Thanks
