Default [Q] Can you have Multi Users with Root?

I'm wondering how if possible to root my second User / account I made on the tablet. I made a second user for someone else in the house to use but I still want to be able to use some of my apps that need root access. I'm running android 4.2.1 and its fully rooted on the Owner account.

Any help would be great even if you just point me in the right direction. Most of the things I've found have been related to Dual booting and thats not what I have / want.

I don't think that's possible. Multiuser was not designed with rooting in mind...
