BRANDON, Fla.  — On the paintball field, Jeffrey Kocab had the speed to fill multiple positions while playing at a competitive level. A member of the Tampa Bay Vengeance paintball organization, he was good enough to play in out-of-state tournaments. Mostly, though, he participated in local events. Kocab, a Tampa police officer, was a captain on a team of teenagers, serving also as their mentor.

Kocab and fellow Officer David Curtis, both 31, were shot and killed in the line of duty June 29. Dontae Morris, charged with their murders, remains in jail.
