You can use a Sharepoint function to do it that is called GetPickerControlValue. You'll need to known the HTML ID of the both fields. Then just use GetPickerControlValue("ID_of_the_UserField", false, false) to get the value.


SPUtility.js is free javascript library which does this very well.


You need to add the js reference in your master page.

// Get the field
var peopleField = SPUtility.GetSPField('Assigned To'); 
//here "assigned to" is field name

spservices.js also supports this. Example

var salesRep = $().SPFindPeoplePicker({
    peoplePickerDisplayName: "Column Display Name"    

Let me know if you need more help.
